From what you tell us, I gather that the following went well after unpacking:
Were you in the right directory to run ./command? It might just be that the binary file "command" is in a subdirectory, e.g. "source", "bin", or something similar. In that case you have to cd to that directory and then type ./command.
If you ran "make install and the command is installed to /sbin or /usr/sbin, then it is one that should be run as root, and the command will be in root's path.
However if you use sudo, you normally need to include the full pathname. You could run updatedb and then use locate to find where the command was copied to or simply read the "Makefile" instead.
