    how to install when there is no makefile

    I tried to install utimer (https://launchpad.net/utimer) by following the below steps.
    Code:
    $ tar -zvxf utimer-0.4.tar.gz 
    $ cd utimer-0.4 /utimer-0.4
    $ ./configure /utimer-0.4$ ls  
    aclocal.m4  autogen.sh  config.h.in  configure     COPYING  depcomp   INSTALL    
     Makefile.am    Makefile.in  mkinstalldirs  po      README.in AUTHORS     ChangeLog   
    config.log   configure.ac  data     Doxyfile  install-sh  Makefile.decl  missing      NEWS           README  src /utimer=0.4
    
    $ make make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.
    How shall I proceed?

    Try reading the INSTALL file and see what it says.

    Running ./configure should generate the Makefile. It did for me:

    Code:
    $ tar -zxf utimer-0.4.tar.gz 
    $ cd utimer-0.4
    $ ./configure
    $ make
