Installation problems

Hello, when I try to install a program (GAIM) and I enter the 'make' command it gives me this error:

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Now, there is a make file in the directory,
what do I do

Did you ./configure first? Check the README and INSTALL files and other Gaim documentation.
