Uhm... are you really using a MacBook? Is it GNU/Linux we're talking here or OS X? If so, I don't have any idea if there's a compatibility layer in Darwin (the underlying OS for OS X) to accept GNU/Linux software for compilation...

It is a macbook, OS X version 10.5.2
What I need is to write a program that can read the signal strength of the 802.11. That's way I wanna install this tool.
