Subject: Building rockbox on OS X (Tiger)

Building rockbox on OS X (Tiger)

I'm trying to build rockbox on OS X for the first time (for the Sansa
e200) and have a couple of questions:

1) I found that I had to sudo /bin/bash (i.e., run as root) and then run
the configure script in order to get it to work. Otherwise the shell
just exited immediately, and any errors that may have been printed out
vanished along with the terminal window. Is that... normal, a
peculiarity of OS X, or simply user error?

2) Having apparently made some progress (rockboxdev.sh and configure
script run without errors), I now get the following error in the build
process (running make from build-dir):

Consider upgrading to GNU make 3.81+ for optimum build performance.

  Stop.

I'm using make v3.80, rather than 3.81 - relevant?

Any tips would be appreciated.
