Did you...
Code:
 tar xzvfp slfcfd.tgz
A directory slfcfd-1.0/ will be created from wherever you do the extraction.

then you'll have to cd into that dir and read the INSTALL.
I just download it and it works. I don't really know for what kind of purpose it is but... you probably will know it.
Do you've got the C compilers installed? You'll need them. So the best is you just install the stuff from the development tools

upon typing which gcc, i got the directory for the compiler, but its empty. Does it mean that my gcc was not correctly installed?

Code:
rpm -qa | grep gcc

output on my system:

gcc-4.1.1-1.fc5
gcc-java-4.1.1-1.fc5
libgcc-4.1.1-1.fc5
gcc-gfortran-4.1.1-1.fc5
gcc-c++-4.1.1-1.fc5
So what fakie_flip said isn't so wrong at all.
But I am not so know with debain as you see I've got FC5 installed.
But can't you go to something like add/remove software and install the Development Stuff?

my linux had on make. just i apt-get install make, then typed
win2s@Win2suse:~/software/SLFCFD/slfcfd-1.0$ make

The options to build SLFCFD are:

make everything You have Mesa-3.0 or OpenGL and want to build everything
make science You just want to build the scientific codes
make gui After building the scientific codes,
you now want to build the GUI
make clean Remove every executable
make clean_science Remove science executables
make clean_gui Remove GUI executables

it works so far. thanks all. win2s
