How to compile qemu (for i386 only) on linux.

Dear All,

I collected tar.gz from
Now how can I compile the source code only for i386 architecture.
I mean, my qemu need not be able to emulate a Power PC, Motorola 68000 or others.
I tried the steps
make install
But there was a failure "No rule to build target 'all'".
Apart from this, the above steps compile the qemu for all architectures too.

Hope to get some help.

Hi -

Looks like
failed without generating Makefile.

Without 'Makefile', you can't compile.

Take a look at the error for why "./configure" failed and fix that.
