    I've been trying to install some software, however, every time I try to do the "make" command on a Makefile, I get the following error: -bash: make: command not found. The manual page does not exists either. I have no idea why the "make" command doesn't exists. I might have added a missing command in the past, but I don't remember. I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.7. Can anyone guess what the problem is? Thanks.

    Have you installed the Developer Tools? If not, you need to go to Apple and register as a developer, then download Xcode installer.

    Your install discs should also have the developer tools.
