errors running make


I am getting a number of error when I run the make utility. I am trying to install the rdesktop client. It needed openssl installed first. I did that but I'm not sure if it installed as it should as I am new to Linux and don't know what "error" are legit messages and which ones are not. Anyway, when I do the ./configure for the rdesktop install, it runs with a number of warnings. When I run the make utility, it simply gives errors. It looks like the errors are undeclared variables.

Thanks for any help,
Marty

You might also try using apt-get to install rdesktop.
