Question Compiling old code: Makefile plus

Hi, I have a question about compiling old code.

I've figured out how to get code to compile that's been downloaded
off the web and contains ./configure files with automake and autoconf.

However, now I've got to get some code from 1999 working. It doesn't
have the above files, but instead has the following:

the following commands don't do anything:

make Makefile
make all

or any make <x> where x is a target in Makefile

Does anyone have a clue?

More clues...

Deep in the ../src/.. directory are makefile.master and makefile.slave that seem to get constructed semi-automatically. There are also some Configure files at that level, but they don't seem to do anything.
