Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Makefiles can be a bit of black magic even to those of us who have written our own!
If the program and makefile have been well written you can probably move the binary to your desired location after compilation with no adverse effects, but I make no guarantee. I've certianly been able to do this with a huge project I worken on (and I never had a configure option in my makefile!).
You make also find that /usr/local/bin is a better place for the binary, it is usually already in your path, therefore if you need to run that binary or call it from a script you don't need to mess around adding to your path.
Alternatively, make it somewhere like /opt and make a link to the binary in /home/Master_9/bin (or /usr/local/bin).
Sorry I haven't been able to help more. If you need help making the links, just let us know.
