i'm trying to install a program which is supposed to work on any 64 bit unix environment with >12 Gb of RAM (which should include my Mac) but this is the only instruction the manual gives on installing.
2.2 Compiling instructions
From a GNU environment, simply type:
Do GNU instructions count for Mac OSX?
that doesn't seem like enough info though? it seems i need to be in the right folder, or direct it to the right file?
i've installed X-code from the Mac OSX CD and got to the man page for make, the package i downloaded contains a makefile, is it just implied by those instructions that i direct the make command at that make file?
just typing make from within the directory seems right? does make know how to find the makefile automatically?
