install firefox1.04 from source,help!

I compile the firefox1.04 from source.
I do by the next step:

1 ./configure --prefix=/usr/ --without-system-nspr --with-system-zlib --with-system-png --with-system-jpeg --with-pthreads --enable-xft --enable-xinerama --enable-pango --enable-crypto --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2 --enable-official-branding --disable-postscript --disable-xprint --disable-strip --disable-jsd --disable-mailnews --disable-installer --disable-ldap --disable-svg --disable-pedantic --disable-mathml --disable-composer --disable-calendar --disable-activex --disable-tests --disable-debug --disable-dtd-debug --disable-freetype2

2 make
but I get error and exit .
the following was error message:
chmod +x
