can't install gcc on Mac OSX 10.3


Ok: here goes:

I download gcc 1.42 (it's the smallest, the more recent version didn't download propperly) and try to run ./configure and it says:
Code:
 $ ./configure
-bash: ./configure: Permission denied
the reason: I need a 'cc' or 'gcc' to install make. why do I need make? so I can compile and run the marine biology case study (java and javac work) for the computer science AP exam (may 20th)

if you can help me either get gcc, make, or the casestudy working I'd be very grateful.

I'm running OSX panther 10.3.4

thanks in advance

Apple Developer Tools

Believe me when I say you DON'T want to use a version of gcc that old Apple provides there development tools free of charge. If you download the XCode package you can just install the gcc3.3 (correct version for Panther) compiler.

Btw... I strongly suggest you upgrade to at least 10.3.8 for security reasons.
