I have been trying to install Gnugo on MacOsX, but I am a very beginner in compiling source codes, and nothing seems to work properly... First, I have had to go to Mac's website to download Developper Tools, since Gcc is not included in the default package of MacOsX. After struggling (this idea did not come to my mind like a simple sparkle), I have finally managed to execute ./configure, which correctly took place. However, when I try "make", I get the following thing, and I have no idea of what I should do with it (sorry, but I don't have much time to devote to reading threads in dedicated forums) :

make  all-recursive

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I..     -g -O2 -c gg_utils.c
rm -f libutils.a
ar cru libutils.a getopt.o getopt1.o random.o gg_utils.o
ranlib libutils.a

Do you have any idea of what I should do in order to simply play Go (which was my origin objective) ? Buy a PC ?

Go to and download Goban, it includes GnuGo and gives you a nice GUI on OSX.

Building GnuGo should be easy, but if you're not a developer, figuring out what you did wrong with your installation is going to be difficult for us to do over email. As others have said, it should just be a matter of:
