Installing my ftp tar file...need help please


I downloaded wu-ftpd source file and put it into its own directory. Then i did gunzip ____.tar.gz. That worked and it made a _____.tar file into another folder. Then i tar -xvf _____.tar the file. That worked too and a folder was created. Then i cd into the folder. Then i ./conifgure and a huge list of things came starting w/ "checking" and ending usually w/ a yes or no. No errors though.

Then i tried ./build install and it did this:

linux:/home/vbp6us/Desktop/wufptd/wu-ftpd-2.6.2 # dir

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Beginning with version 2.6.0, the WU-FTPD Development Group is moving the
build process to use GNU Autoconf. Until this move is completed, both
build systems will remain supported. You are encouraged to use the new
"configure" command to select options, then "make" to compile the daemon.
For details on this, read the README.AUTOCONF file.
If problems occur, please report them to the development group via email to
wuftpd-members@wu-ftpd.org We are soliciting feedback on the new
configuration process, and your help is greatly appreciated.

If you choose to continue to use the original build process, bear in mind
it will be phased out over the next few releases: when we are reasonably
sure the new configuration system works for most target platforms.

Sleeping for five seconds, sorry for the interruption.
make args are :
make opts are :
./build: line 232: make: command not found
linux:/home/vbp6us/Desktop/wufptd/wu-ftpd-2.6.2 #



Why do i not have the make command??? I tried proftpd before this application and it too said i have no make command. Im using Suse 8.1 pro.

Thanks.

Did you install the development packages during your installation?
You usually have to be specific about wanting them installed
(I don't know SUSE verywell, though). Those packages should
be on your install disk, so you should be able to install them with
minimal problems.
