The quickest way I know of I to enter the directory with the source and run
Code:

./configure
make
make install

But you have to have the development addon, and if you just run those without checking the readmes you might miss a critical configuration detail and have to recompile.

Here are the detailed instructions:

Don't be daunted by it. We tried to write the instructions very detailed.

It actually boils down to:

Download usr_devx.sfs (It contains all the compile tools required)
Extract source
Follow INSTALL or README instructions on the source. Usually.
./configure
make
make install

That's it for most packages.
