I am trying to install a utility called EGS_Windows in Darwin and it comes with an installation script for the old Iris system. This utility is normally installed in Linux, and I have the linux installer script as well. Anyhowm I try to run the script by:

make -f Makefile.iris
make -f Makefile.Linux

Both of these return a long error message that I have attached to see if any can give me any word of advice on how do I start translating the iris script into something Darwin can understand in order to install the utility.

Thanks a lot

PS: the Iris.txt and the LINUX.txt are the response I get from Darwin whe I run the scripts

That's not going to work. You need the actual source files to even start trying to convert to Darwin. (you DO have xcode installed right?)
Would bet it needs X11 also.
