    not done it this way myself, but see if, in the first folder that the extraction produces, there are files called INSTALL and/or README.
    If there are, then read them (a quick "cat filename | more" will do the job).

    If not, then it may follow the usual install procedure of firts doing a "./configure" followed by a "make" followed (as root user) by a "make install".

    But like I say, see if there are any readme style files firts.

    have fun
