I don't use MacOS, so I'm not sure. Typically, git is used to get
the _source_ code. The next step would be to compile. It is
usually easier to use a pre-compiled package, but often that
requires installing some package manager system.

"configure" will try to check the computer for what is available
for the compiling process. If you haven't compiled any other
software on that computer, most likely there will be a bunch of
errors complaining about various things missing.

If you are new to this, the easy way for you would probably be
to instal one of the 'package managers' and then install your software
(including sox) via that.
I am using macports (www.macports.org) which has a package of sox
that you can install as simply as
port install sox
That will download all the prerequisited dependencies,
compile them, install, then download, confogure, compile
and install sox.
Or is there a specific reason you _want_ to install from git?
