    Some basics things to compiling.

    1. Read the REAME and INSTALL files
    2. After doing that, you'll probably have to install some dependent libraries or other programs
    3. Once that's done, follow these steps:
    a. ./configure
    b. make
    c. make install
    d. make clean

    The last step is really optional to clean some object files.
    The best things in life are free.
