[linrad] Progress: SUSE 9 and LINRAD

Progress is slow but I am sustaining progress.

Piece parts for the new computer are on hand and all parts working together.

SUSE 9 pro recognizes the Matrox millenium video card, the AC'97 audio on the motherboard, the DELTA-44 soundcard, a SB PCI soundcard. video resolution 1024 x 768 easily achieved.

I loaded SUSE 9.0 Pro and have achieved getting the command line.

minimum load of SUSE does not have the dev tools needed, load all capabilities.
updatedb and locate commands were found and loaded from the distribution CDs

svgalib-1.4.3.tgz was loaded and processed. make install was successful (no errors indicated)
links (ln) as suggested, were made.
nasm-0.98.tgz was processed and     make     was successful without errors.

for LINRAD, lir01-15.tbz        :
ls  /mnt                                       floppy file was present
mount  /dev/fd0  /mnt/floppy       mounted the floppy OK
cd  /home
cp  /mnt/floppy/lir01-15.tbz
umount  /mnt/floppy
bunzip2  lir01-15.tbz                 unpacks OK,   lots of files extracted
tar  xvf  lir01-15.tar
cd  linrad-01.15
./configure lots of activity, prepares for compilation make also lots of activity, then finally

make:  *** [vgatest]  error 1

any suggestion on what to do next  ?   How do I diagnose this error  ?
Othe lesson learned, spaces are important, my printer probably using a proportional font made spaces smaller initially suggesting to me that some command lines were with out spaces.
Spaces are important.
