Hello all,

I am new in this list, I find Spread is really powerful, it can save me a
lot of work. However, I just couldn't install Spread onto MAC not only
because I am not familiar with Spread but also not familiar with MAC. I have
tried severl times followed the documentation. There are some problems:

when installing binary distribution
1, which architecture should I choose? Linux?
2,Mac OS X has a Terminal console, must I use this to install Spread?
3,when I type "make arch-linux" (as users_guide.pdf told) into Terminal
console, there is an error "make: *** No rule to make target `arch-linux'.
Stop." What should I do?
4, after installing binary distribution, what can I do is just run a Spread?

when installing source distribution
1, as users_guide.pdf told me, I type "./configure" to install it.
the results are
Spread has been configured with the following options:
                    User binaries: /usr/local/bin
                  System binaries: /usr/local/sbin
              Configuration files: /usr/local/etc
                   User libraries: /usr/local/lib
            Shared Spread Library: libspread.dylib
Shared Thread-safe Spread Library: libtspread.dylib
                     Header files: /usr/local/include
                     Manual pages: /usr/local/man/manX
                         PID file: /var/run
               Manpage format: doc
                          Host: i386-apple-darwin8.4.1
                        Compiler: gcc
                      Compiler flags: -g -O2 -Wall
                       Preprocessor flags:
                           Linker flags:
what is ridiculous is that I have no /usr/local directory.And I have no
privilege to make a directory in /usr.

2, I decide to use my own path to configure it. So I type "./configure
/users/d", but it make no use.
3,  after installing source distribution, what can I do is compiling my
program whit spread library ?
Could anyone give me a hand? I am really appreaciate you.
