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.

the qmake.conf file is missing (or not where it thinks it is), but its needed by the Makefile to compile the program.
The no target error is because when make finds a dependancy it can't find it assumes that it must have to make that, so it looks through the Makefile for rules on making the missing dependancy, can't find one so there is no rule to make target.
to me it means your running as root when you neednt be. it also means you havnt followed the documentation that came with whatever it is your trying to compile. if you have then i apologize, can you tell us what it is your trying to compile and where i can get it from and i'll give it a go.
thanks to MasterC's great advice in the naming and location of the source, ive found your problem. you didnt run ./configure, there are loads of guides on installing 'configure/make/make install' sources so i dont feel the need repeat it here. if you cant find anything then theres a chapter on it in the rute users guide by paul sheer, the best *nix administration guide ive ever found. which you can definately find a link to by googling.
