Thanks to Paul Roebuck and Walton A. Green, I now realise it is a
Source Package not a Binary Package, and I install the .tar.gz file,
but I still get this error when I Install:
WARNING: ignoring environment value of R_HOME
* Installing *source* package 'gamlss' ...
** arch - ppc
** Restoring previous
/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/SHLIB: line 1: make:
command not found
No such file or directory
ERROR: compilation failed for package 'gamlss'
This happens with the package installer or from the command line, and
authenticating makes no difference. Why is the make command not found?
