ummmm...can we get some more info please. You should put your distribution in your profile so we know what we are dealing with. My guess is that your distribution has an easier way to install php other then compiling from source.

make must be in your path. Run:
Code:
which make
to see if that's true.
In the directory you extracted php there is only a Makefile which tells the make program how to build the source.

when i run which make it points me /usr/bin/make
but when i try to run this file i get nothing to be done for make /usr/bin/make or /usr/bin/make i get no target specified and no makefile found.
FYI there is a makefile.objects and makefile.fragments in the extracted directory.

Are you in the same directory that you ran configure in? You need to be in the same directory as the Makefile. Do a ls on your directory and make sure that the Makefile is there.
