If this is the case even after *re*installing the command line tools  
in case you upgraded (which I assume you did, otherwise you'd  
presumably get other errors), then you will have to explicitly specify  
a location of an SDK via -XR/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/ 
Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.8.sdk or /
