Spell out your words, please.

Chances are you don't have a makefile in there. Where did you get this software? Did you take a look at the installation instructions that came with the package?? Not all Linux software is distributed the same way...some have a configure script that builds the Makefile for you, others have a file you have to rename.

When you run make you need to run it from the directory with the makefile in it.
