macOS compiling for dummies

Hi all,

Since 4.1.3 I've not been able to get the pre-puilt binares to run on Mojave or Catalina. 4.2.0 didn't load and 4.2.1 just generates the menu structure.

I had thought 'well how easy would it be to build my own?' given the command line tools are installed and I know my way around git (from my day job); no I've not a developer let alone one that knows anything about package building in C.

I got as far as trying to do the make, by following this, but it seems to be missing the osx specific makefile. If I leave out the suffix I get:-

$ make -f Makefile
Makefile:2: mk/ No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `mk/'.  Stop.
looking into the UNIX build doesn't help either

sh ./
*info* running aclocal (-I m4)
./ line 38: aclocal: command not found
*error* aclocal failed. (exit code = 127)
I'm sure they'll be lots who know the obvious answer so could anyone help ?
