Default 'make : *** no rule to make target 'install'.Stop.

i did the following to install vlc player on fedora core 5.

# tar -jvxf vlc-0.8.6c.tar.bz2
# cd vlc-0.8.6c
# ./configure

After this i run the 'make' command still under the vlc-0.8.6c folder and thats when i got the error
'make : *** no rule to make target 'install'.Stop.'

i got confused at this point because i din't see any make file in the vlc-0.8.6c folder. i only found Makefile.am and Makefile.in.

Please assist.

Were there any errors during ./configure?

BTW, why don't you just install the vlc package with Fedora's package manager?
