I didn't see any error in ./configure (anybody else saw something?).
Apparently it didn't like make because there is no makefile (or Makefile).
should create all the compilation scripts based on your hardware and libraries.
uses makefile (or Makefile) to compile.
place the executable into your $PATH.
Bottom line: There has to be an error in the ./configure section
because it didn't create the makefile.
Update: I tried to install gnomesword and got the same error!
Another possibility, gnomesword people messed up?!?
What distro are your using?
I was able to use apt-get because my Xandros distro is debian-based.
[no installation error, but I can't find it - still looking.]
If DEB-based, try using
apt-get install gnomesword
If RPM based, try install one of the RPM and use the "rpm -i" command.
Anybody else installed gnomesword successfully?
