hand or with a package manager. You probably do not have it if you
haven't installed it. You get it from Apple. Either in the App store
or from the Developer website. I'm not sure if the App store works on
10.6, of if the Xcode found there is compatible with 10.6. There is a
package somewhere on the Apple website with just the command line tools
needed for compiling, but I don't remember the link or name, and also
don't know if it's compatible with 10.6.
As far as package managers go, I wouldn't avoid them if they offer you
tools that you want. I used macports and fink years ago to complement
programs I had manually compiled and installed, but I see no reason not
to use Homebrew now. It's matured greatly over the last couple of years
and more or less just works now. It's also designed for minimal
disturbance of the OS X ecosystem, so I see no reason to stay away.
That being said, I'm not sure if it still supports 10.6. Look at the
brew installation instructions for more detail:
