well, if ./configure didn't fail (succeded) then it will create a Makefile, but if it fails, it makes no Makefile. Try to run ./configure again, and carefully look at it's output, at the end it should give a bunch of lines such as "creating Makefile.brahms, creating Makefile, etc) in other words many "creating something" lines. If you don't see this, it most likely couldn't find something it needs. Post the output of ./configure so we can help further. If it worked, then issue make from the same place you issued ./configure from (same directory).
