The configure script is in the tarball... it just doesn't make much sense
to put the configure script in SVN, since it changes so often, and is
purely a generated file. So when using SVN, you have to run ./bootstrap,
which handles the series of automake, autoconf, etc calls for you, and when
that's done, you'll have a ./configure that you can use normally.

I only used LD_LIBRARY_PATH because the libs were not in a standard spot.
I like putting test compilers and software in home directories of their
own... makes it easier for me to tinker on things completely separate
from my normal system.
It's just how I do it... you likely won't need it if you have all the compilers
you need installed on your system.
