Just another note. On Jim Lindsey's site, you can find the suggestion:

MAC Users: if you have problems compiling a library, try removing the
Makefile from the src directory.

This always has worked for me although I find that I need to compile
from the terminal command line.

In general, I've found the author very responsive to fixing the smallest bug
that might arise in these packages.
