Not all sources uses ./configure, read the specific README or INSTALL file of the program you want to compile.

Looks like your missing a required component to run the software. Id suggest going to the projects website, they may have links to prerequisite packages.

You really didn't read the FAQ at the ABC web site, http://pingpong-abc.sourceforge.net/faq.php?

How to use ABC Linux version?
First, you have to install python and wxPython. and set your environ "BROWSER" to your browser. For example, if you use "Konqueror". in bash shell set "export BROWSER=$BROWSER:Konqueror". This will make "open destination" work. I don't know about Advanced setting, I did something mistake or my Linux is bad. I can't set anything in Advanced setting. So if you want to set advanced setting go to "abc.conf" file and set it there. Linux version is in an alpha state, and I don't have time to develope it so use it with your own risk.
wxPython ( http://www.wxpython.org/ ) is separate software that you obviously did not install yet.
