The error message makes me suspect that the ./configure script did not finish successfully. Can you post the output of running it? You can also install Kaffeine by doing
#apt-get update
#apt-get install kaffeine

Smile Kaffeine

It's apt-get not apt get. And apt-get won't install the new kaffeine that you have. You can either compile it yourself or you can get the new kaffeine from this link. It is a deb file so just download it. Then left click the file and kpackage will start up so you can install.
