 From what I understand, they don't want you to do the "make" process,  
they suggested that you install fink and then afterwards, you need to  
"fink install hevea" which will take care of all of that stuff for you.
As for compiling anything from source, via fink or "make", you will  
likely be required to install the XCode/Developer Tools from your  
installer DVD or from developer.apple.com.
