Here is what you need to do...
Decompress the tra/gzip file
Go into the decompressed directory
Look for files like: README or INSTALL. These files usually contains the instructions to install the source code.
If no such instructions are mentioned then follow these steps:
./configute ./make ./install
This should help you.
