Please follow the build instructions in the README file at the top level 
of the repo.
If you are building from a git clone then you have a few steps:

The quick version is here:

make install

However, you should read the full version for details.
In particular, you might have to be root to run make install, or you 
might want to run configure with options to deliver the build products 
to somewhere other than your system.
