I am in the long process of learning how to install software using UNIX
so that I can use a particular program. I am running Mac OS X 10.9.4. I
know almost nothing about UNIX and have just been following directions.

I am in the process of installing the RPM package manager. However, I am
having trouble getting the software to work.

In the installation directions, I am able to get through the
./autogen.sh and ./configure commands fine, with the appropriate flags.
However, when I run "make", I receive the following error messages:

In file included from fts.c:64:0:
../system.h:123:3: error: expected identifier or '(' before '{' token
   { if ((__progname = strrchr(pn, '/')) != NULL) __progname++;    ^
make[2]: *** [fts.lo] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

What's going on?
