Makefile.in is a configuration file used by GNU autoconf.  You
should make sure you have autoconf, M4, and automake installed on
your system.

The source directory might already have a "configure" script 
present (this is the output of autoconf/automake).

To build, first run:

It will give lots of output as it scans your system for necessary

Then you can do a "make".
