Jed and Satish,

Thanks for your responses.  However, that is the first thing that I tried:

rmills at ubuntu:~/proj/petsc-dev$ make -C ubuntu-gnu_g/
make: Entering directory `/home/rmills/proj/petsc-dev/ubuntu-gnu_g'
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/home/rmills/proj/petsc-dev/ubuntu-gnu_g'

Then I assumed that the instructions meant to say 'cmake', not 'make'.  What 
is supposed to generate the makefile that gets used?
