Did you install Xcode? You need more than the commandline tools, that's just git and a bunch of other things like it. The compiler and frameworks come with the Xcode app itself. You didn't find any info on Google because it's Mac and *everyone* installs the GUI app first (aka Xcode), so they'd already have it.

nstall that, then go to the Downloads tab in the preferences, and make sure the Commandline Tools is installed there. If not, install it. Then configure & make will work. I was actually working with portaudio for another project and it compiles fine for me.

For reference:

SDKs are installed to: /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs

You can also see in Xcode in the project build settings: click on project in project tree, select Build Settings tab, there should be an entry for the SDK with a dropdown box
