I would read the .txt files and see if they tell you what to do.

You have a Makefile there. In general, one does
Code:
make && sudo -c 'make install'
to install from a Makefile, although this is not necessarily the case. It depends on the package.

I don't know rar, but I notice one of your file is rar.
Is it an executable (i.e., do a ls -l)? If so, type

./rar

in that directory.
