Unhappy Compiling with IMAKE


[just a note to those who respond - i'm a newb, so feel free to be explicit. even if you're not, i'll look up definitions. thanks!]

hi, i just downloaded xkeycaps - and it doesn't use the typical compiling method "./configure; make; make install" that I am accustomed to. The README instructions provided with the xkeycaps.tar.gz file instructed me to use "xmkmf ; make ; make install ; make install.man".

so, i opened my console, switched to the directory i had extracted the files, and ran "xmkmf".



then i read somewhere

$ xmkmf
imake -DUseInstalled -I/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config

then i googled and found that i needed to add an -a argument afterwards.

$ xmkmf -a
mv -f Makefile Makefile.bak
imake -DUseInstalled -I/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config

i didn't understand any of this, so i attempted to run make.

$ make
make: *** No rule to make target `xkeycaps.h', needed by `xkeycaps.o'. Stop.


1. can someone help me understand what is happening?
2. what should I do?
