I think what's happening here is that calling the
make utility from the command line is just failing because of OS X's draconian security mechanisms. If I recall correctly,
make is part of the "Command Line Tools" package which is distributed by Apple themselves.
Try opening the Terminal app and just typing in the command
make and pressing enter. It should give you something like:
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
which just means that the program is available and tried to run but it didn't haven't any input to work with which is normal.
If this gives you any kind of security verification dialog, authorize the program. If it fails to find the application, try running the command:
to see if it can find
make. On my my virtual machine OS X this gives:
which is where the actual
make binary is installed.
Another approach is to try installing the Command Line Tools: https://medium.com/faun/macos-catalina-xcode-homebrew-gems-developer-headaches-cf7b1edf10b7
The new way to do this seems to be:
After they're installed check that the
make program is visible and working using the same ideas I describe above. At that point the Axoloti patcher app should be able to call it.
