when you cd into the extracted directory, can you do an ls -la and see what is in there. Also you should always try to use up2date before you compile from source especially for something like CIFS support.

you should definitely register, up2date is the managing software, without using it you will run into a lot of headaches unless you are very comfortable with building everything from source...

Register? Red Hat 7.3? It is DEAD. Nobody should use this version any more, it is unmaintained.

Isn't up2date built with the ability to update 7.3->8.0 . I know there was a lot of documentation back in '03....

Apart from other recommendations;
Is there a file called configure in that directory? (ls -l configure)
Is it executable? (chmod +x configure)
Try again...
Is there a README in the directory that You can look at and read for instructions?
They may very well differ from the "usual" incantation of ./configure;make;make install

RH-8 is dead too, and so is RH-9. Using such ancient distros does not make sense at all. No security updates for years, no new features, no new hardware support ... etc.
