     It sounds like you think that the source code is a binary that you can
     run.  It is not.
     If you want a binary that you can run, please download one for your
     operating system:
On the other hand, if you really did want to build from the source tarball, 
there are step by step instructions located in the INSTALL file: See

These instructions, and those on the web site, are intended to be simple to
follow.  So if you find they are not please report it as a bug.
