I ran into this problem when we configured the client on several OS X servers.  You need to get the second install CD for OS X and install the BSD utilities.  I do not recall what they are as I do not have a system CD in front of me, but it should be fairly clear when you mount the CD.

Read throgh the documentation.. If I'm missing something obvious, let me know.

But I can't even do a configure on my OS/X 10.4 box:

# ./configure.server

Configuration script for Hobbit

This script asks a few questions and builds a Makefile to compile Hobbit

Checking your make-utility
Unknown option: n
Usage: head [-options] <url>...
     -m <method>   use method for the request (default is 'HEAD')
     -f            make request even if head believes method is illegal
     -b <base>     Use the specified URL as base
     -t <timeout>  Set timeout value
     -i <time>     Set the If-Modified-Since header on the request
     -c <conttype> use this content-type for POST, PUT, CHECKIN
     -a            Use text mode for content I/O
     -p <proxyurl> use this as a proxy
     -P            don't load proxy settings from environment
     -H <header>   send this HTTP header (you can specify several)

     -u            Display method and URL before any response
     -U            Display request headers (implies -u)
     -s            Display response status code
     -S            Display response status chain
     -e            Display response headers
     -d            Do not display content
     -o <format>   Process HTML content in various ways

     -v            Show program version
     -h            Print this message

     -x            Extra debugging output
GNU make is required to build Hobbit.
If it is available as "gmake", run configure as: 'MAKE=gmake

Any suggestions?
