Thank you all very much for your response. I wanted to learn the
command-line Rtcmix because I felt it was the best way to get a feel for it.
I thought then I would know how to use the Max object properly. I suppose
I'm not sure of the difference between the two types of scripting so I went
for the long-winded approach. Two things - 1) I reinstalled xcode and the
./configure works fine. 2) Having installed rtcmix from John's link (which I
had found last night - thanks John) permission is denied when I try to copy
the CMIX executable as per Jerod's advice. I'm so close (I think)!!
