There are obviosuly a bunch of prerequisites to compiling stuff, the
first being to have a computer at all, and then somewhere along the
road you end up with having to have a compiler installed.
Anyway, compiling C stuff was not really what I thought we were

Prerequisites again. GNU make is 'make' for me, in my packaging
environment. We build GNU make as part of the bootstrap process.
However, I know for a fact that at least one of the three mentioned
applications can be built with BSD make too ;)

If you were in fact talking about a _C_ compiler (as opposed to 'erlc'),
then how would using Erlang for the installation work without having
xcode installed on mac-osx?
