unrar installation

I was wondering how to install unrar... there isn't a ./configure and make doesn't do anything...the readme doesn't say anything about installing it. Here is a ls of the dir.

Any help is appreciated.

Check how source-based distributions do it. For example, search the CRUX port database.

There is a package available for Slack at linuxpackages and there is one for Mandrake via urpmi. I would still like to know the answer as well if anyone knows it.
