../configure: Permission denied error on mac os x

I am trying to install wxwidgets 2.6 on mac os x 10.8.5. I have got this error


../configure: Permission denied
when I try to execute from a root with

sudo ../configure
i have got this error

sudo: ../configure: command not found
What's the problem?

Only one dot: ./configure
Two dots makes the shell think you're trying to source a file called ./configure, as in trying to read a file into memory like a $PATH or something.

Also, these commands should not be run with "sudo", you are compiling a program locally so do it as you, not root..

The only step you need elevated privileges for is the installation (or, "make install").
