Trouble Installing Root 5.18 on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

I’m new to Macs, and I can’t seem to get ROOT to install properly. ./configure returns that I am working in Mac OS X, but when I move next to make, it returns:

make: execvp: build/unix/ Permission denied
/bin/sh: build/unix/ Permission denied
/bin/sh: build/unix/ Permission denied
make: *** [lib/libCint.dylib] Error 126

I set ROOTSYS to the root directory, but in case it’s pointed to the wrong place, this is the path:
$ echo $ROOTSYS
$ /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/texbin:/usr/X11/bin/root


i just installed on leopard and works like a charm.
Just follow instruction on INSTALL readme file and use
./configure macosx.
Before proceeding be sure to have XCode and g77 compiler installed.
g77 can be found from
Note that ROOTSYS must point to the root directory where the source is.
e.g. for me


If you install the Tiger binary it will work like a charm thats what i did.
