I'm a noob.
I download the doxygen bin version, I extract in my Downloads dictionary, then I use cd to the the doxyen folder, and type ./configure , and the type make, but there' s an error:

~/Downloads/doxygen-1.8.2 $ ./configure
Checking for GNU install tool... using /usr/bin/install
Created Makefile from

doxygen-1.8.2 # make
/usr/bin/install -d /usr/local/bin
/usr/bin/install -d /usr/local/doc/doxygen
/usr/bin/install -m 755 bin/doxygen /usr/local/bin
/usr/bin/install -m 755 bin/doxytag /usr/local/bin
/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `bin/doxytag': No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1

what's wrong with it?
I also wonder what's the difference between bin and source? Is something like which one is better?
