I am having a difficulty on correctly installing waves2foam in OpenFoam 6 in mac Catalina. As instructed in the manual, initially I have installed the following third-party dependencies:

git --version
git version 2.25.2

whereis svn

gfortran --version
GNU Fortran (GCC) 5.2.0
Copyright (C) 2015 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

gsl-config --version

After sourcing OPENFOAM environment, I have initialised the download process of waves2foam through the following link:
svn co\

to the utilities directory of the OpenFoam directory:

at the end of which I have encountered the following flag:
Checked out revision 2139.

I then moved to the bin/bashrc and correct the paths as follow:

export WAVES_DIR=/Volumes/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-6/applications/utilities/waves2Foam
I also point out that I convert the into an executable before the installation process began.

Then, I ran the installation command (./Allwmake inside the waves2foam directory), and I got the following error


Cloning the OceanWave3D git repository ...
Cloning into 'OceanWave3D-Fortran90'...

Problems with the compilation of the third party dependencies
It says that I have some issues related to third party dependencies, but I have properly installed all the proposed ones (see beginning of this post). The problem occurs at OceanWave3D, which the compiler can access through git.
Any advice?
