Ok, I did as root ./configure, make and on make install I get the image attached. F1?

Hi you have to run make install with sudo (i mean as a root .)
so change to root and continue . but please post the text , dont attach the image .

thank you .:)

Off course I did run make install as root, that can be seen on image (other than the # sign, for regular users, they have @ sign before and color is green, for root color is red). You are right, I should have posted text instead of image:
