I guess you have gcc already installed, which will be required for tlf
compilation. You may also need the fink package, not sure though.

This is in the UNIX Terminal window that you'll have to rebuild tlf.
After downloading the file, you will most probably do:

        tar zxvf tlf-x.y.z.tar.gz
        cd tlf-x.y.z
        make install

No need, to switch to Linux. I have no idea whether TLF has already been
ported to Mac OS X, but it shouldn't be a problem. I can help Rein in 
the port if the sourceforge farm is up.
