I just installed Foswiki 2.0.3 on Mac OS X 10.10.5 (Yosemite)

uname -v
Darwin Kernel Version 14.5.0: Tue Sep  1 21:23:09 PDT 2015; root:xnu-2782.50.1~1/RELEASE_X86_64

Configure is complaining about RCS

ScreenShot:

RCS is present (after installing Xcode et al)

rcs -V
RCS version 5.7

FYI:
rcs: unknown option: --version

Also, note that the error message repeats its first sentence.

Could you please include the result of the
xcodebuild -version
Asking because it seems you having an nonstandard combination (yosemite + probably some left-over rcs from older xcode as 5.2). From the apple Xcode release notes for 5.1
The CVS and RCS source control tools have been removed from Xcode 5. 11968433
So, because the current and future Xcode doesn't contains rcs anymore, common users needs install it from some third-party package management like Macports / Homebrew / etc. or directly from the sources. Unfortunately, the latest sources (5.9.4) from the https://www.gnu.org/software/rcs/ didn't builds in El Capitan. (nor from the Macports) - so, currently the rcs binary is an general problem in OS X. frown, sad smile

After updating the glib2 to the newest Macports version (glib2-2.46.2_0.darwin_15.x86_64.tbz2), the rcs is installed cleanly from the Macports, and prints:
nox:~ $ rcs -V
rcs: warning: -V is obsolete; instead, use --version

Of course I wrote this only as reference for the other OS X users - handling the older Xcode's rcs is needed anyway.

Hopefully this is resolved by some other checkins to Item13870. Setting to Waiting for Release.
