i don't understand exactly what you're saying but those commands basically will do the same thing on every linux distribution
./configure - runs a script and checks if you have all the requirements to compile the software from source
make - will compile the source ... create executables
make install - will place the files (executables,config files,man pages,etc...) of the software in the right (standard) location if you didn't specified the locations yourself
