> Can i instead of running make ,download the tarball file and the run

Note that we have two kinds of tarballs: 1) A clone of the git
repository, for use when for some reason cloning the repository
normally is extremely slow or unreliable, 2) release tarballs, for
each released version, the newest one then being for 4.4.x. Only the
latter ones contain a pre-built configure script.

Note that if you are planning on applying for GSoC, you are expected
to be able to build the master branch, not 4.4.

If you have all the dependencies, and are lucky, sure.

> Please suggest something as am unable to proceed further.

Ask specific questions, show specific error messages, work on getting
past build problem one at a time.
