You need to be a system administrator user to run make and you have to
use sudo to run make:


directory where wine source is$ sudo make
password: <enter password here>

lots of lines of make code


If you do not know how to use sudo, don't.  There is wineskin, Mike
Kronenberg's WineBottler and other builds available on the Internet for
Intel Mac's running Leopard and Snow Leopard.  If you are running
Leopard on a Power PC Mac, there are NO known builds that will run
Windows programs on this platform.  However, someone else can chime in
and please correct me.
