~/src/xcache $ su
~/src/xcache # make install

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

Which exact line through the error?

Chances are, ./configure threw an error (and hence didn't generate the make file). Check the output for that command and see if it's saying something's wrong.

This usually works best (from the shell, inside the base of the source code directory):

./configure && make && make install

The && will only execute the next command if the last one was successful. If there was an error in the ./configure command you should see it right after it stops running.
