gnome-disk-utility-0.4: building with the source

hi all, I downloaded the and
unbunzip it and untar it.
And ./configure runs well. And I get no Makefile in the directory.
And when I hit make it gives this error message.

bt gnome-disk-utility-0.4 # make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
bt gnome-disk-utility-0.4 #
But there is a and , what should I do? It not sounds like working. .

bt gnome-disk-utility-0.4 # ls
AUTHORS      NEWS         config.guess*          gtk-doc.make  src/

Quite a project ! I hope, you can use some of these notes.
Else : Google .. gnome-disk-utility ..

'configure' should end with these words :
        Maintainer mode:            no
        Building api docs:          yes
        Nautilus extension:         no
Are you quite sure, that configure did not say one of these :
= 1) ...4)
1) configure: error: gnome-doc-utils >= 0.3.2 not found
.... ( install gnome-doc-utils ).
2) No package 'unique-1.0' found ( install 'libunique' ).
3) No package 'libnotify' found ( install libnotify ).
4) No package 'DeviceKit-disks' found

> > [devicekit-disks_007.orig.tar.gz] ( Links for .... )
Devicekit-disks depends on : a) libsgutils2
> > [sg3-utils_1.27.orig.tar.gz]
b) libgudev-1.0
[udev_147~-6.tar.gz] Suggest: Do not install to a system path.
May trash the default udev handling.
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gudev/
"udev_147" → dependencies = usbutils libeggdbus gperf
c) "polkit-gobject" > libpolkit
d) libparted
e) libatasmart
f) libudev >= 142 ! → But you can do this :
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/gudev/lib
Most files refer to Ubuntu. Wasn't aware that BackTrack3 is Slax.

'gnome-disk-utility-2.28.1': make worked.
( version 0.4 or version 2.29.90 : errors.)
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/gudev/lib
./configure --enable-gtk-doc=no
