It's hard to make this package without a makefile. I made v. 0.29.1 instead.
Sorry, I don't understand. I just downloaded the tarball again to make sure. It has a Makefile.in, which is used to generate the Makefile by running configure. Do the instructions in the INSTALL file work?

I ran ./configure first and no Makefile resulted. I've been a bit distracted, so I didn't notice the error messages:

There may be a problem with my setup. I installed gcc, then my Mac required service. It was a software configuration problem, so my disk had to be wiped and the OS reinstalled. Since then, I've had to go through contortions to reinstall gcc. I had to download clang first, which assumed it was gcc. I fixed that, as my success with v 0.29.1 and this output attest.
