I'm a newb too but it looks like you need to :
Get to the command line as root then


Type:cd /diretory where gaim files are* press return *insert the path to gaim directory ie cd /bla/bla

Type:make press return.

Type:make install press return.


see what happens.

You have to run ./configure too before you compile it with make.
