No (maybe I'm a special case ;-) ) - because I thought the c directory 
would be meant by the "source tree". So I startet to go in the subdirs to 
configure it all seperately... There is a directory called build in the 
distribution. So it's not so far away to think, that this is meant.  :-(

So you see: This all is really new to me - sorry. Yesterday evening I 
browsed through the mailinglist archive and found many things bringing me 
further - especially setting "CC=gcc ./configure ..." and additionally 
there is a patch, if I make all targets the make process fails (as told in 
the archive - some typo...). Maybe it's getting better if I just use one 
target, as I wanted at first.

I will try to write a small basic readme especially covering the problems 
I had, if I'm done. You are right: The documentation is very explicite, 
but I just wanted to know a few things. I'm mostly familiar with building 
software packages.
Thanks for your help. I will try it with your commandline.
