That appears identical to examples/standard/rinside_sample0.cpp (even though
for some reason you do not say so).

All examples in that directory built via the Makefile, so either one of


    make rinside_sample0

should do.  If they don't, then your setup is busted.  As I do have not have
access to OS X I cannot help and meekly suggets you ssh to a simpler-to-use
system.  Based on prior email exchanges with you I seem to recall that you
should have access to a RedHat/CentOS and/or Debian/Ubuntu system.  

Try that to convince yourself _the file you are looking at_ is fine.
