The source rpm will create an rpm when you run it. Browse to this rpm in a terminal and (as root (using su)) type rpm -ivh bluefish-<the rest of the package name>.rpm

What is endur? When I use su I become root. But it seems to have installed - type bluefish and hit enter.

It's someones compiled binary which has been modified to not need su access to install... but it worked... you can also use this apt repo to get bluefish and other goodies:
