Did you do sudo make install? make install must be run as the
administrative/root user. Since Ubuntu has no root user you must either
run the command with sudo or type sudo -s to get a root shell. 

./configure && make && sudo make install

Also, if you're interested in building debs, you can easily backport
gaim-otr from breezy. I wrote instructions how to do this on the forum.
See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=40544&highlight=gaim-otr .
