So does that mean that the configure file is responsible for generating the makefile? That seems rather odd to me. I would think that the makefile would be native to the .tar.gz. Here is a list of the things that returned 'no' from the checks when I ran ./configure:

checking for g++... no
checking for c++... no
checking for gpp... no
checking for aCC... no
checking for CC... no
checking for cxx... no
checking for cc++... no
checking for cl.exe... no
checking for FCC... no
checking for KCC... no
checking for RCC... no
checking for xlC_r... no
checking for xlC... no
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether g++ accepts -g... no


checking whether stat accepts an empty string... no


checking for accept() addrlen type... socklen_t
checking for special C compiler options needed for large files... no
checking for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS value needed for large files... no


checking for libm math function in std libs... no
checking for pow in -lm... yes
checking for main in -luClibc++... no
checking for main in -lstdc++... no
configure: error: Neither uclibc uClibc++ or standard gcc stdc++ libraries found.

I don't see anything that looks like it is related to the makefile, but maybe I'm wrong.

In the directory in which I un-tar'd the kismet folder, I have two files called and I thought that these were the files with which I need be concerned but apparently not. What should I try next? Thanks in advance.
