Compile Success!! Many thanks to ALL!!!

Of course, now I have to figure out how to configure 
the emulated 5250 terminal to cooperate with our IBM AS400 setup. 

For any Newbie following this thread as an example
Here's a compilation of what I had to do. . .

  Obtain the source of the project I wanted to compile.

  Read the instructions the author included for compilation.

  Try the instructions and get a slew of compile errors; 
  one of them indicates that I don't have openSSL installed.
  (Ignore the fact that Apple installs an openSSL variant)

     Fink install openssl

  ISSUE the following commands to make the compilation 
  compatible with Fink & MacOSX:

     setenv CFLAGS "-I/sw/include -no-cpp-precomp"
        ###you have to put the options in quotes 
        ###because setenv only takes one argument 
        ###and I'm trying to set two

     setenv LDFLAGS -L/sw/lib

     ./configure --prefix=/sw


     make install

Hurrah! the project compiled & installed. 
Now go try it out.

Finally, go read the Fink Packaging Manual and pull all your hair out
as you attempt to follow libjpeg package as an example. 

The "Goat" book  covering the GNU AutoBuild tools
should definitely have a link on the Fink Web Site.
