how to configure and make for x86_64


Hi

very basic question..

I would like to configure and make some games for my Suse9.3 amd64 pc, but when I untar the games and run the commands as per the install doc I get

caulfiek@linux:~/download/ultimatestunts-srcdata-0531> ./configure
checking build system type... Invalid configuration `x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu': machine `x86_64-unknown' not recognized
configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu failed
caulfiek@linux:~/download/ultimatestunts-srcdata-0531>

I realise that I need to provide additional parameters to the ./configure command. Can you tell me what they are, or is there an easy way to install programs in tar.gz files?
