Are you sure there is a configure script in that directory? Read through the INSTALL file that usually comes with those.
less INSTALL

Yes, ls will list the current directory you are in. I would read the INSTALL file first it offers very detailed instructions on how to install the file and all dependencies needed to install it, as well as options that can be passed specific for your setup.

Ok read the README file first ..its almost screaming at you to. Then if src is a directory most likely you will be able to
cd src
./configure
make
make install
Good luck and sorry if I am wrong.

There are requirements and installation instructions here, which didn't take me long to find (I only needed to google for the project's homepage).
