assuming you're on 10.4 or 10.5), and all I usually do is just copy/
paste the appropriate make instructions, and things work fine. Saves
on odd typo errors.
If you can copy/paste your commands and their output from Terminal,
you'll get more detailed help. Building on OS X isn't any different
from any other *nix, really, there's nothing OS X specific that you
have to worry about.
