Why do you make clean before you make install? Doesn't make clean, clean out your source tree which means getting rid of anything that was compiled? Or am i just making that up?
hughesjr
a make clean normally removes compiled files ... so doing it before or after ./configure shouldn't make any difference .... so as long as you do it before make, everything will be alright....I think they are just removing potentially bad previous make attempts before issuing make again....

I noticed that you did make clean, followed by make install .... but you need a make after make clean and before make install. I would do the make clean before ./configure

so the order I would use is:

make clean
./configure
make
make install
