Please describe the problem.

git-annex doesn't start.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

launch git-annex from terminal (if it is ran from GUI it doesn't open without notifying any error)

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

Version: 6.20171128-g58b04cd2e on OS X 10.13.1 (17B1003)

Please provide any additional information below.

I solved the issue by manually changing the file /Applications/git-annex.app/Contents/MacOS/bundle/B which is an alias pointing to the file /Applications/git-annex.app/Contents/MacOS/bundle/usr/lib/libz.1.dylib with a new alias having the same name 'B' which link to /usr/lib/libz.1.dylb. I'm pretty sure this is not an optimal and general solution, but it is useful in order to prove what's the problem. Further, for it worked.

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)
