i cannot help you in detail (some other devs might be more osx-savy,
though), but i will try to give some generic hints.

it seems like your system cannot find a number of needed things, namely
- - a valid compiler (gcc)
- - a valid "make"
- - working autotools (e.g. aclocal)

at least the former two should be installed when you have XCode
properly installed. either you missed something when installing (e.g.
only copied XCode app, but forgot to run the "installer"), or you have
to add some paths to your PATH variable.
try locating the "make" binary (e.g. `find / -name make`) and add that
path to your PATH.

autotools used to come with xcode, but it seems that they are not
shipping it any longer (confirm [1]).
you might have luck using a package-manager like "fink".
