Besides the good advice from others you might want to do the following:

  [1] Read the readme well! Especially the section about building.
  [2] Run configure  like this:
       configure >configure.log 2>&1
  [3] Open config.log and configure.log in a word processor and search for
        and "fail"
        (this will tell you what the configure's view of your world is: such
as it  cannot find some module's headers and other anomalies. You'll have to
fix the problems with modules you want to use.
  [4] do the same thing with make.

  A python gets along without arms, legs and batteries, but Python doesn't
do well at all.
