I'm a long time mac user but, new to unix. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Well, this is a really old message; but for anyone reading with the same problem: you didn't load the Apple Developer's Tools. You don't have gcc or cc, which is the Gnu C Compiler needed compile the source code.

    The Developer Tools are available on a CD which comes with Jaguar or Panther.
