[EMBOSS] problems installing EMBOSS on MacOSX 10.5.6

I cannot manage to install EMBOSS 6.0 and jemboss privately, on a Mac OS X version 10.5.6. (This is the first time I am trying to install EMBOSS.) I have no formal computer background, so I am afraid my questions will sound naive.
I downloaded everything into /Applications/EMBOSS (I created). Downloaded there all .tgz files from the xfree86 as you mentioned. When running the sh Xinstall.sh, lots of permissions denied, yet "installation successfully completed" (very confusing).
I tried to compile, but I have no "make". Where should I install it, and get it from, please? I downloaded the make-3.81 from http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Developer-Tools/GNU-Make.shtml, gunzipped and tar'ed it, but the make clean command is unknown.
Could anybody please help me? I guess I have paths and permissions problems (also). I have no formal computer background, so I am afraid my questions will sound naive, and I may not understand lots of abbreviations and jargon.
However, I loved working with EMBOSS while at Sanger, and would like to spread its use.
Many Thanks in advance,
Psssst! Schon vom neuen GMX MultiMessenger gehört? Der kann`s mit allen: http://www.gmx.net/de/go/multimessenger01
