can't make


I downloaded gaim - gaim-0.64.tar.gz and i unpacked it to my hd.
With this tutorial standby ht tp : // w w w.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=45094, i am now trying to install it.

At a certain point it says i have to run "make" after ./config. When i type make in the shell and press enter it says: No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

I'm stuck, any help welcome.
Thanks in advance.
