Install the Developer Tools disk.

I don't know how you get a new DVD.

You might be able to build a working development environment without the Developer Tools use fink. But I have never tried that.

You can get make with the latest version of Xcode, available from Apple's Mac Dev Center, or through MacPorts.

MacPorts requires Xcode. – Nerdling Jan 13 '10 at 20:59
Thanks, Nerdling. I had no idea — I guess I've always had the developer tools on machines before installing MacPorts on 'em. – Sidnicious Jan 18 '10 at 3:05
