    Unable to sudo make install with HandBrake

    Hi, I am having trouble installing HandBrake. I have the latest version of yasm, and subversion. I have gotten messages in previous failures that two files failed libfaac and libfaad. These are both in the repository and I didn't get it this time. Below is the end of the output from the "make" command and after I tried "sudo make install". Any ideas. What does "No rule to make target 'install'" mean?

    HandBrake/doc/BUILDSHARED
    HandBrake/doc/COPYING
    HandBrake/doc/CREDITS
    HandBrake/doc/THANKS
    HandBrake/doc/AUTHORS
    HandBrake/doc/NEWS
    HandBrake/doc/TRANSLATIONS
    HandBrake/doc/BUILD
    richard@dell-desktop:~/HandBrake$ sudo make install
    make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
    richard@dell-desktop:~/HandBrake$

    What are you running the make install on?

    Without trying not 100% but I believe handbrake and hblib are done at 'make'
    Then you would build the gkt gui and that would be installed with a 'sudo make install'

    Edit: built a couple of times, seems to be a couple of ways, either with 'make' or './configure && jam'

    when that's done
    Code:
    cd gtk && ./autogen.sh
    At this point 'make 'installs to /usr/local, to change to /usr then,
    Code:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr && make

    And then either
    sudo make install, or (red to just make the .deb

    Code:
    sudo checkinstall --fstrans=no --install=no
    Make sure you give it a new version number in checkinstall (name, comments, ect. if wanted
