experenced installing from source, but the process i am aware of is to
run ./configure if available and them make, make install. I run make and
am able to get that to work but there is not install rule. So can anyone
give me any guidance on how to get this all installed?

Assuming it's for SLE 11, have a look here;

If it's a different release, just select in the dropdown It will
pull in the dependiences for you.
