Quick question. Are you using SuSE Personal or Pro? Pro comes with the development tools such as compilers and make/gmake.

2nd, In the directory that you are running these, is there indeed a configure file?

If so, you probably need to execute ./configure since the dir you are in is not part of your path.

Then if that works, you can run make and then make install.
