If the code is good and has compiled on Linux, then there is no reason
that it won't compile on Mac OS X. To do this you need Macs Developer
Tools installed and functional.
Visit and download or install Xcode
from the CD provided with the G5. Also install X11 from the Mac CD. or
download it and install it. You will need it.

The latest version of compiler from Developer tools is gcc version 3.3.
You can then use the command line to compile your program for Mac. If
the program has a make file with it, you can use make to build and
install your programs. Don't use fink to install the compilers. Mac
have their own bundle which integrates nicely. You may also find their
Developer tools handy for handling large programming projects.
