When I type "make", it errors out with this error message;

I'm not sure what it means either. Do you happen to have the environment
variable MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET defined? What happens when you enter
the command


From looking at the file sysconfig.py referenced in the error message,
it appears the error can occur only when MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET is
defined. It might have been defined somewhere else in the build process,
or maybe some other software package defined it. Try opening a new
terminal window and building from there.
