Ah, then that explains it.. You should go back and read this section. As you 
have most likely forgotten to do these steps before you did the ./configure 

It explains what you have to do to un tar/gzip/bzip2 a package and how to cd 
into the packages base dir. Once that's done you can continue with the 
directions in chapter 5. *Remember you have to follow the directions in 
ch02-install.html once for each package before you proceed with the 
configuring and makeing instructions.
