I guess it depends on which version you downloaded :).  Did you get it off of
my website, or did you pull it from git?  If you pulled it from my website
previous to today, then the only version up there was 0.3, so you must have
that.  The name of the file should also be something like libdeltacloud-0.3.
If you pulled it out of git, you can do "git tag" or "git log" to look at
the version you are currently at.

$ ./
$ ./configure
$ make

Which will build the library for you.  Note that there is no executable
generated, just a .so.  I will add a top-level README into the source code
with this information.

No, not at all.  I would be surprised if it works there without some
modification, but if you do get it working, let me know the steps so I can
put them in the README.
