So you're looking for a quick "How do I compile"-Howto?
# cd to a directory appropriate mkdir Sources, e.g. ~/src
# untar the sources
tar -xzf /path/to/cipe-1.5.4.tar.gz
# cd to the newly created cipe sources directory
# The Makefile needs to be configured first. The following process
# also detects you Unix and compiler version and many other things.
# You might also add a lot of configuration options like
# ./configure --without-pkcipe
# See the documentation for details
# Actually compile
# Install the software. This step requires root priviledges
This "triple jump" "./configure ; make ; make install" is very typical
for compling unix sources, a README file should list them anyway.
