It looks like the software you're either trying to configure or build or whatnot is looking for a file "Rules.make" and it's not there.

From the top level of the install directory, you could run:

find ./ -name Rules.make and see which ones are there.

I'd say either delete the package and untar and do a ./configure again, or grab either a newer or older package.
