Not necessarily. It depends on your target OS and runtime environment
ABI. If you want OS 9 (CFM) then you need MPW or Codewarrior. OS X can
run CFM (MPW/Codewarrior) or Mach-O produced by gcc or Codewarrior?
(not sure, I don't use Codewarrior).

MPW is a shell with makefiles but the makefiles are different from Unix.

Not sure here either. I think Jamfiles were used in ProjectBuilder some
time ago, that means OS X/gcc -> Mach-O environment.

>Could I compile ftmac.c via UNIX style configure/make process?

Yes, but only on OS X targeting Mach-O.

Hope this helps, Christian
