The sudo -s is only necessary if you want to install the software for all users 
on the system.  I don't know where things get installed system wide for OSX.  If 
you are only a regular user, then forget the sudo command and simply run 
configure like this:

./configure --prefix="base-install-path"

where "base-install-path" is the directory into which you want to install 
everything; for example, "/home/jschultz/spread"

That should work for the source distribution.

Good luck!
