Angry installing kopete-0.7.4


when i try to compile kopete-0.7.4 on my SuSE 9.0 it compiles okay BUT
when type 'make'
i get this error msg:
linux:/home/Enigma/Documents/src/kopete-0.7.4 # make
make: *** No rule to make target `kopete/plugins/perlscript/configure.in.in', needed by `c onfigure.in'. Stop.

anyone have any clue what is goign on here?
I've used the bz2 an the tar.gz file an i get the same msg

BTW i uncompress the file :
bunzip2 kopete-0.7.4.tar.bz2
tar xvfp kopete-0.7.4.tar
and
tar -zxvf kopete-0.7.4.tar.gz

What do you mean it compiles OK? The compilation step happens after you type 'make'. Do you mean it configures OK? I presume that you ran
./configure --any-options-you-want
first?

my bad i meant it ./configured okay.. but when i got to type make i get :

linux:/home/Enigma/Documents/src/kopete-0.7.4 # make
make: *** No rule to make target `kopete/plugins/perlscript/configure.in.in', needed by `c onfigure.in'. Stop.

You need to do cd kopete before typing make, then it will compile allright - at least that worked on my suse 8.2
