HowTo: Install make on a Mac without XCode
I love it when things 'just work' and the osx-gcc-installer is a nice, all in one package that will install make and other GNU build essentials for your Mac without having to install XCode. The pre-built binaries are available for both Snow Leopard (OSX 1.6.x) and Lion (OSX 1.7.x). So this is great if you have the older version of OSX. You can get the installer from the link above or from the download page .
