Linux Client Instructions, no makefile?

I am attempting to compile the client for Linux on my test bed and after unzipping the tar, I cd in and attempt to make, per the instructions. I consistently get a no makefile found. I am fairly new to compiling from source, and don’t know how to go about solving this. I am running Ubuntu 12.04, and this is a clean install for the most part. I have updated and installed build essentials, but that’s about it.

Sorry. Forgot to mention that you need to run configure before make i.e.


Thanks for the heads up!
