I haven't done much tooling about with compiling apps for use, I
normally go about getting the finished binary, or an RPM file. I have
noticed that the normal end result of ./configure is a target makefile,
which this has failed to produce.

The DEB based distros that I have used have had no problem installing
gnome-sword, apt-get is a charm in that regard.

On occasion you can use Fedora\RH RPM's on SuSE, but they have grown
more apart that I didn't even try dl'ing and looking at the RPM file.
