User_guide.pdf(pg 39): Adding Tests to The Included Testbench

I’m following the user_guide.pdf to add my own test. I’m not able to get past the below step:

make TARGET=design-rtl PROGRAM=hello CONFIGURATION=debug software

I am tempted to post the error here. Part of me want’s to start clean. Is there a step-by-step “clean” way to get started with this? It looks like I’m scavenging for information here and there to get this working (build my own test and run my own test) - And I believe that a part of this might have to do with the fact that I some how started the whole thing the wrong way. Any help appreciated.
