Newbie,Makefile and....SystemC


Hi all,
Muhammad Salman here,i am facing a problem related to linux and to some extent to a programming language called SystemC,i am new to both of these and didnt know exactly where the problem lies but its related to make concept in linux
Q1 ,i have a question what is difference b/w make,makedefs,make.in,make.an ?
Q2 ,also in systemc i have simulated a few examples and they run fine and in its user guide it has been adviced to take a makefile from example folder and paste it into ur programs folder and it wud work...but it doesnt seems to be working...i have changed the few paramters of it which says like the folder path etc...but it shows me this error

bash-3.00$ gmake
gmake: *** No rule to make target `Makefile.am', needed by `../../../../first_program/Makefile.in'. Stop.

help wud be realy appreciated....
Thanks
-Muhammad Salman
(P.S : if anyone wants to have a look at makefile i can mail him,i cant see here attachment option)

'make' is an application that reads and executes Makefiles. Having around make.in, make.and, and similar file signals that you first need to run ./configure to create the Makefiles for your current system, based on those make.in etc files.
The programming language is called 'C' (I'm not aware of any language called SystemC, though I might be missing something new), or some relatives like C++ or C#.
