I have a program built on linux with a makefile but can not compile it on my mac. I have X11 and darwinports, but when I try to use make it tells me

"csh: make: Command not found."

I tried to use automake but am not exactly sure how to do so. I get the following error

automake: `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE' must be used
automake: no proper implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE was found,
automake: probably because aclocal.m4 is missing...
automake: You should run aclocal to create this file, then
automake: run automake again. required file `./install-sh' not found required file `./mkinstalldirs' not found required file `./missing' not found
automake: no `' found or specified

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
QUOTE Thanks
