1 - make backup of Evo emails files etc in program

4 - In terminal ran command .configure with no other detail - does
this need a file ref??
5 - In terminal ran command sudo make install - no other detail...

Can you see what the problem is and if I'm doing this correctly or
recommend corrections please?

You missed a step between configure and make install:

Plus not sure which distribution and distribution version you try this
on, so I cannot say anything about other dependencies which might also
require updating.

Assumed you should use a distro that does use RPM or DEB packages, then
you could run  checkinstall  instead of  make install , this often can
build a package, even if you shouldn't know how to build packages
yourself. FWIW, checkinstall doesn't help you regarding to dependencies,
you still need to check out this on your own.
