It is my understanding that yes we and possibly a couple of other primates
are the only mammals who do not make our own vitamin c.  Linus Pauling
has written about it.  I forgot what he said, but I know he did address
the question of why this might have happened in evolutionary terms.  For
Marc, there is a chemist by the name of Karen Long who teaches at
Diablo Valley College in Concord, Ca who worked with Linus Pauling on
vitamin c and she might be able to help you.
