Linpus Linux Lite - Thunar File Manager plugins - need support

Hey, I own an Acer Aspire One running Linpus Linux Lite which is based on Fedora 7. I have been trying to install a plugin to the Thunar File Manager which enables me to create archieves on right click. This is the guide I have been following:

I have managed to get the source from SVN alright, it is now called thunar-archieve-plugin in the home directory, but i can't even complete the first step for compiling and installing, here is what I did:

[user@localhost ~]$ svn co \
> thunar-archive-plugin
Checked out revision 7206.
[user@localhost ~]$
[user@localhost ~]$
[user@localhost ~]$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

I know I must be missing something obvious, but by following the instructions I am getting no where. Can anyone help?

you need to " cd " into the directory FIRST
for example
cd theFileName
BUT 99% of ALL code in svn WILL require you to run " autoreconf -v -i " first in order to make a configure file

Do you have gcc , and the auto tools installed ?
