automake is usailly a shell script to fully automate the process,

just run automake

otherwise the normal way to compile anything is to run, configure, autoconf or whaterver elce it may be called somtimes even called run_me_first (honestly it depends what whoever wote teh code called it )
then run
make

then
make install
