[cfe-dev] Problems getting the Static Analyser to work

Hi all,

I've been hearing people raving about the static analyser in clang and  
it does look very impressive so I've been wanting to try it out for  
myself. The problem is that it doesn't seem to want to compile my  
code. When I run the following command I get errors with my code:

./clang/scan-build -V -o /results xcodebuild -configuration "Debug"

For every file it tries compiling I get the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/Users/martinpilkington/Personal/M3/Apps/Lighthouse Keeper/ 
Lighthouse Keeper/dev/clang/ccc-analyzer", line 286, in <module>
   File "/Users/martinpilkington/Personal/M3/Apps/Lighthouse Keeper/ 
Lighthouse Keeper/dev/clang/ccc-analyzer", line 283, in main
     analyze(clang, analyze_args, language, output, files, verbose,  
htmldir, file, analysis_type)
   File "/Users/martinpilkington/Personal/M3/Apps/Lighthouse Keeper/ 
Lighthouse Keeper/dev/clang/ccc-analyzer", line 87, in analyze
   File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/ 
python2.5/subprocess.py", line 443, in call
     return Popen(*popenargs, **kwargs).wait()
   File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/ 
python2.5/subprocess.py", line 593, in __init__
     errread, errwrite)
   File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/ 
python2.5/subprocess.py", line 1079, in _execute_child
     raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I've tried this on two machines (both running OS X 10.5.4 and Xcode  
3.1). I've tried this with checker-57 and checker-60 (62 seems to have  
a bug that makes it not want to work at all with paths with spaces in  
the name). The project builds fine if I build from Xcode or run  
xcodebuild on its own but I get 27 failures (one for each file). Is  
there some sort of configuration setting or something I'm missing?  
Please be warned that I'm not the most command line savvy of people.
