    You need compilation tools: the gcc compiler, make, library headers, etc. Check with the Entropy package manager to see whether there is a basic build package with all this stuff in it. Most distros have one. If not, you'll just have to install the bits and pieces separately.

    make shure yo have installed make and gcc, if the source code have an .configure file, run it, and if something lacks you, that stop, so you see where stops and install wherever need it.

    basically you prompt in the spurce code directory

    ./configure (if exists)
    make install (as root)
