Installing ClanLib Problems

I've tried to install multiple programs, all from .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 files, but I have never gotten past the ./configure part. It always comes up with some sort of error. Well, I just upgraded from FC2 to FC3, and decided to give it another shot. So I try to install pingus, a little game that was on the SUSE Live CD, but not on Fedora. It comes up with an error, but now it's one I can fix. It says I have to install ClanLib from So, I download the tar.gz. I actually complete the ./configure part! So, now, as I understand, next I'm supposed to use the command, "make". So, I type that in and hit return. It does something, so I'm assuming that's a good thing. But then it doesn't stop, and everything it says is complete gobledy gook. It also appears to just be repeating itself. So, I close Konsole and take a look at the README and INSTALL.linux files. They essentially say to do exactly what I did. I go ahead and try "make install", but get essentially the same thing. I leave it be for a while, and when I come back it has some sort of error. I try "make" again and leave it be, and when I come back, it has a similar (I think it might be the same) error. Here's the last few lines of the output:

libtool: link: `sprite.lo' is not a valid libtool object
make[2]: *** [] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/penguinboy/Installers/ClanLib-0.7.8/Sources/Display'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/penguinboy/Installers/ClanLib-0.7.8/Sources'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Can anyone help me? Thanks.
