Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I wouldn't think this is a problem with your speaker, but rather the source code telling you something. There is an ASCII character to represent a "bell" to your speaker. If there was a problem during compile, it's possible the developers use that character to get your attention when something has broken/derailed. In this case, there may have been a single failure that cascaded down causing other failures.
1. Wipe your source tree and re-extract; that will keep any previous compile attempts from tainting a new one
2. If it happens again, did you download a stable version, or did you get it from CVS? Try a stable if you got from CVS
3. If you still have a problem, double check and arguments (if any) you gave to the configure script
4. If everything else fails, chakkerz's advice: "disconnect the speaker"
