Thanks. I noticed as ran (what was planned to be the first 
time), it appeared mostly normal but very occasionally there were some 
displays scrolling by that could have been warnings. At the very end of 
running, it ended with this:

     CMake Error: The source directory 
"/home/frank/src/subsurface/build" does not appear to
         contain CMakeLists.txt.
     Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
     make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

When I then tried executing "ccmake build", it repeated the first two 
lines of this error message, and the only option presented was to exit.
