Hi Joerg,

first of all you need to install the Apple Developer Tools. Not sure
if they are still available for free (possibly on the install DVD)
or if you need to buy them using the App Store (Search for XCode,

After that you can follow the instructions at

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards
