Hi, I installed R in Mac OS X, and trying to installa package. R is not
allowing me to install the meboot package. Below is the exact message I got
from R:

  installation of package ‘meboot’ had non-zero exit status

Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 411681 bytes (402 Kb)

sh: make: command not found
ERROR: compilation failed for package ‘meboot’
* removing ‘/Users/ravshonbek/Library/R/2.15/library/meboot’

The downloaded source packages are in


Can anyone please shed some light on it?
Thank you
