Not to mention that GNU make is the make program that comes with Mac
OS X anyway. You don't need to build it yourself. It's been a while
but IIRC the trick is you have to install Xcode, the native Mac IDE.
They assume that if you want to do development you'll be using Xcode,
so all the development tools (compilers, headers, etc) are bundled
with it. And they consider make a part of the development toolset. You
don't actually have to use Xcode, you just have to install it.
