Error text is, while not always useful, the right place to start. So,
the error in question is "Makefile.proto: No such file or directory." Is
there such a file? Is there a file with a similar name? (If you've
already looked at this stuff, it's useful to let us know -- I'd be
surprised if anyone here has done exactly what you're doing now, so we
may be groping about in the dark for a while.)
