Did you get any apparent error messages from './configure'? If you did,
this will indicate whether your system lacks something essential, or
is not properly set up for the job.

If not:
An indication of where things went wrong, and possibly of what went
wrong, should be available in the output from 'make'.

However, this is often voluminous, so I suggest you try

  make 2>somewhere/make.errors

where "somewhere" is a convenient directory to store the stuff. Then
page through this, and try to identify indications of problems.

Good luck,
