This says that there was an error trying to install the package. It
looks like you are on a Mac and trying to install a source package.
Do you have Xcode installed, as the error also suggests that "make"
was not found on your system.
As an aside, it is always a good idea to include the output of
sessionInfo() when reporting problems to the list.
