Pam Keyring Problem

Thanks for the advice regarding Pam Keyring yesterday! Installed it OK 
and logged out and back in again and I was not asked for the default 
keyring password so I assumed all was ok...

However - I had not used the same password for the keyring as my login 
password so this morning when I powered up - there was the screen asking 
me for the password.

So I read a bit more and discovered that I needed to change the default 
keyring password to match. There was a "Testing" package that enabled me 
to do that so...

Now this is where I think I've done something silly...

I downloaded the "Testing" pam_keyring-0.0.8.tar.gz package, rm'd the 
previous package and ./configure runs ok but when I make it seems to go 
wrong here...

> make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/pam_keyring-0.0.8'
> make: *** [all] Error 2

Now I think it's because I just rm'd the old package and did not make 

So I think I need some guidance as how to recover from this situation.

One thing I tried was to download the first package again and installed 
that - it seemed to go ok and then I did a make uninstall but when I 
tried with the testing package I got the same result as before...

Best Regards,
