I've installed astrometry.net 0.89 using Homebrew and when I run:

$ solve-field --scale-low 10 demo/apod4.jpg

I get the following error:

Reading input file 1 of 1: "demo/apod4.jpg"...

jpegtopnm: WRITING PPM FILE

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/opt/netpbm/lib/libnetpbm.11.86.dylib

  Reason: image not found

 ioutils.c:568:run_command_get_outputs Command failed: return value 134

Checking the netbpm/lib directory with "ls /usr/local/opt/netpbm/lib" I get:

libnetpbm.11.99.dylib    libnetpbm.11.dylib    libnetpbm.a        libnetpbm.dylib        pkgconfig

So it seems I have version 99 rather than 86. How do I go about resolving this, please?

I got around this by copying libnetpbm.11.99.dylib to libnetpbm.11.86.dylib

After using "make install indexes" I had to move the index files to the ---/Cellar/--- directory to get solve-field to work.
