Default problem with root on linux device

hi , i have my gf's phone and i wanna root it for her.

1. downloading latest flashtool for linux http://www.flashtool.net/download.php

2. running it. gives me libusbx needed. when i search in ubuntu forums i find out that libusb-dev is the same. anyway im trying to install firstly the libusbx but there is no "make" file in there. command make doesnt work so i cant install it. i install libusb-dev but that doesnt work with flashtool.

so thats it. im stuck there. any idea ?

<<EDIT>>

look at the images. im running:
1. sudo apt-get build-dep libusbx

to get the dependaries.

2. im running automake as instructed but it tells me its version is not right and i should have automake 1.13.4.

so this all is crap. is there any way to use the flashtool or not ? dont tell me to go bak to ubuntu 10 for example. thats not happening.
