I never Installed k3b from source. SO i can't tell you what the exact command to run,because i don't see you whats the file contain in your k3b-0.11.24
source directory. To Install any software from source Generally you need to configure and run following command.

# make test
# make
# make install
and you are done.
Note: You may need to add option in configure command. To see available option for any command run ex.
# configure --help
Better is to install through command line using yum. It will resolve you dependencies.
#yum install k3b -y
