    Hello,

    I'm trying to run makefiles in order to compile some projects but I keep getting the "permission denied" message. I'm "administrator" and when I first saw that it didn't work I passed to su so that I would be running the command as "root," however I still get the same message.

    I checked the rights and got:
    8 lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 7 Mar 20 09:04 make -> gnumake

    and

    $ ls -als /usr/bin/gnumake
    568 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 286988 Jan 13 2006 /usr/bin/gnumake

    Any ideas of why it may not be working?!? I'm kind of new to this stuff so it could be something really basic that I didn't think about.
