Question make: *** No rule to make target `all'


I get this error message as I try to compile the Nagios NRPE addon for the Monitoring host per the standard instructions in the NRPE Documentation.

The server is running RHELS 5.3 and gcc compiler 4.1.2. I've run ./configure before try to execute:

make all...

I continue to get the message no matter which way I hold my head. I'm a relative neophyte to compiling on the fly, so any thoughts/help is greatly appreciated...

Thanks in advance...

Are you sure ./configure was finished without errors and a Makefile was created? Run
Code:
ls -l Makefile
inside the directory containing the sources of the program you try to compile.
