how do you compile Bzflag once you've "checked it out" from Sourceforge.net?

running SuSe 10.1, this is what I get (autogen.sh command fail):
Found GNU Autoconf version 2.59
Found GNU Automake version 1.9.6
Found GNU Libtool version 1.5.22
touch: cannot touch `INSTALL': Permission denied
cp: cannot create regular file `misc/COPYING.backup': Permission denied

Automatically preparing build ... Warning: autoreconf failed
Attempting to run the configuration steps individually

Preparing build ... ERROR: aclocal failed
EDIT: do you have to use root mode? cause there's nothing going wrong in root.
EDIT 2: GOOD GOD!!! Root couldn't create some directories. AND ROOT IS THE SYSTEM MANAGER.

First of all i dont even know why you would want 2.0.9 since there probably is not many new features.

the directory to grab the compile is always the same no matter what the latest version is. Please read about compiling on the other forums for help there.
