For the first time I compiled a program by myself.
Frightening but I think the waiting was worthwhile.
Going to my trusted Yast I found that the program is not
mentioned in the list of installed programs. What did I
forgot after the compilation?

Create an rpm for the new program, and install it.

The easiest way for this -- programmings gurus here differing -- is to use checkinstall. Just call 'checkinstall' as root instead of calling 'make install'.
