Those instructions are from the original .tar.gz source.  ./configure
is used to create the Makefile prior to compiling the program.  The
source documentation is usually (?) installed as part of a Debian
package, but since it is already compiled, you do not need to do this. 

There is probably something else in the documentation which describes
what configuration you need to do, if any.  Check the file listing
"dpkg -L qpopper" and see what was installed.  Check any man pages

I have used both qpopper and cucipop, but am currently running popa3d,
which doesn't require any configuration and is both simple and secure.
