Exclamation installing tiny fugue *help please*

I am trying to install a program that runs on linux and am trying to follow the instructions on how to install it, but i get lost on where to go and what to do. If i can learn this i probably wouldnt have any problems installing stuff again (maybe). But here are the instructions they give on how to install it:

TinyFugue for UNIX-like systems

Installing TinyFugue

TinyFugue should work on any Unix-like system that has an ANSI compiler
and BSD-style select(). This includes almost everything except some old
SVr3-like systems which either do not have select(), or have a select()
that works only on STREAMS devices but not terminals.

Installing TinyFugue is quite easy on most Unix-like systems.
In the top directory, execute these commands:
make install
The configure script will attempt to figure out everything it needs to
know about your system and install all files in their proper location.
If you have any problems, or want to change a default installation
option, be sure to read the rest of this file.

In addition to the usual GNU configure options, TinyFugue's configure script
has these options:

--enable-version insert version number into name of tf executable
and library directory (implies --enable-symlink)
--enable-symlink[=NAME] make a symlink NAME to the executable [PREFIX/bin/tf]
--enable-inet6 enable IPv6 support (may be broken)
--disable-netdb disable hostname resolution
--disable-termcap use hardcoded vt100 codes instead of termcap
--enable-termcap=LIB enable termcap with library LIB (e.g., ncurses)
(needed only if configure guesses incorrectly)
--disable-mailcheck disable mail checking
--enable-mailcheck=DIR enable checking for mail in directory DIR
(needed only if configure guesses incorrectly)
--enable-manpage enable installation of man page
--enable-strip strip debugging symbols from executable
--disable-history disable /recall and other history features
--disable-process disable /quote and /repeat
--disable-float disable floating point arithmetic and functions
--with-incdirs=DIRS search for include files in DIRS
--with-libdirs=DIRS search for libraries in DIRS
--with-inclibdirs=DIRS same as --with-incdirs=DIRS --with-libdirs=DIRS
--with-inclibprefix=DIRS same, but appends '/include' and '/lib'

The following environment variables are meaningful to configure. Their
default values are listed in brackets after the description. They can
be set on the command line like this:
sh -c "CPPFLAGS=-I/my/include ./configure"

CC C compiler ["gcc" or "cc"]
CFLAGS Options for C compiler ["-g -O2" or "-O2" for gcc,
"-g" for others]
CPPFLAGS Options for C preprocessor (e.g. -I) [""]
LIBS "-l" and "-L" options for the linker (in addition to the ones
determined automatically by configure).

SSL libraries are typically installed in /usr/local/ssl/{lib,include}.
To let TF find these, use the "--with-inclibprefix=/usr/local/ssl"
option with configure.

So im lost and need help, i wish linux to me was easier, but all its seemed to do is give me torubles... WIneX 3.0 which i finally installed screwed up on me and all the games i installed are no longer found, and on the plus side every time i try to install it says the file path to install like starcraft ( C:\program files\starcraft ) is to long invalid or has some security features running or something like that. Dont know... but just wondering where my games went off too. Plus i installed a game called Nightmist and for somereason its fonts in that game took over WineX and all the text in winde looked arabic and italicized. But after a long time the fonts reseted along with everything else grrrrrrr. I wanna play games.....

Well a long time ago i had asked questions about java, well i figured out where to and how to do it... but now opera and mozilla find it but i still cant view java aplett tables... so im about to give up on that. Ive figured out flash and macromedia and am now working on this mud program i want to use to play my favorite mud. Can anyone help me.

And if you need more info like another big instruction paste id be happy to paste the other part which i dont know if it would help or not. But thank you all for helping a person who is a total to linux systems
