Sometimes if there is a configure file. If not you have to do a
combination fo autoconf and automake. But usually there are instructions
in the README file on exactly what to do.

I have installed Chris Willings Slack packages for 9.1 on a handful of
systems. All works great, but you have to do two things to get it to work.
The README file only states one.

1. Grab the slack package from 9.0 of python-2.2 and install it. Don't
worry, it won't install over 9.1's python-2.3.
2. Make a symlink from /usr/bin/python2.2 to /usr/bin/python2

Then just install the PREREQs first, then the rest of tarballs. Make sure
to use the rat-alsa with 9.1 (since 9.1 uses ALSA instead of OSS).

If you need any help, I'll be glad to help.
