I am just getting underway here, and JACK is giving me trouble, won't get past this:

checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... no
checking for nawk... no
checking for awk... awk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: in `/Users/ninamaxwell':
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
logout

I am not sure what a C compiler is, nor where the $PATH is. IS there something I need to put in the /users/nina... folder?? I have very little programming experience so these things may be obvious. I am running this on Mac OS X 10.6.8 .
Not sure if this is the proper place to ask about help with JACK. Let me know if there's any directions I can be pointed in.
Any and all help is much appreciated. Would love to get inside.

If you are on Mac, go to jackosx.com and download form there and install with a standard .pkg

What you are trying to do is compile the source code to an executable program, which if you want to do, you would start by installing XCode on OS X which would bring in the needed compiler, etc. But honestly for 95%+ of people, this isn't really what you want to do to just run Jack.

Thanks a bunch! That did the trick. Surprised JACKs site couldnt have mentioned this somewhere, I felt I scrubbed it, ah well. Thanks again for the help.

@MildewSound: http://jackaudio.org/download has links to (the same) OS X binaries. In addition, when you downloaded Ardour from this site, you would have been shown a page that mentioned that you needed JACK and told you to get it from jackosx.com ....
