How to compile bitcoin source code with wallet?

I’ve built the bitcoin core on my computer and once I tried to run tests related to wallet, I encountered this error:

[[email protected] bitcoin]$ python test/functional/wallet_createwallet.py  2022-06-20T16:36:53.675000Z TestFramework (WARNING): Test Skipped: wallet has not been compiled. 2022-06-20T16:36:53.725000Z TestFramework (INFO): Stopping nodes 2022-06-20T16:36:53.725000Z TestFramework (INFO): Cleaning up /tmp/bitcoin_func_test_mnwvrnya on exit 2022-06-20T16:36:53.726000Z TestFramework (INFO): Test skipped 

When I tried to reconfigure the compilation process by ./configure I noticed it doesn’t compile wallet:

Options used to compile and link:   external signer = yes   multiprocess    = no   with experimental syscall sandbox support = yes   with libs       = yes   with wallet     = no  

But I don’t know how to change this option to compile with wallet. I took look at ./configure options but see that it is enabled by default:

[[email protected] bitcoin]$ ./configure --help ...   --disable-wallet        disable wallet (enabled by default) ...

How can transaction fees be explained in a simple way?

I am reading the book Mastering Bitcoins 2nd Edition by O’Reilly, and it says: Alice buys a coffee from Bob’s Cafe for $1.50, or 0.015 Bitcoin So Alice pays 0.015 Bitcoin, and Bob gets 0.015 Bitcoin, but there is a transaction fee, paid to the miner.

I am reading the book Mastering Bitcoins 2nd Edition by O’Reilly, and it says:

Alice buys a coffee from Bob’s Cafe for $1.50, or 0.015 Bitcoin

So Alice pays 0.015 Bitcoin, and Bob gets 0.015 Bitcoin, but there is a transaction fee, paid to the miner.

There are some questions:

  1. Does Alice pay more or does Bob get less? (the fee has to come from somebody)
  2. The way to calculate the fee seems to be a whole essay. Typically, what kind of percentage can the fee be, if it is a $1.5 coffee, or if somebody sends another person US$1 million dollar worth of Bitcoin, or if it is exchanging Bitcoin for US$1 million? But one person mentioned that it is voluntary (even the link above said the spender "may" include a fee, suggesting they can choose not to), but who would want to pay a fee if they don’t have to? I can understand if they send over US$1 million and the fee is $13, then they probably don’t mind and "want" to include a fee.
  3. The miner gets the fee — is that the miner who originally did the mining of the coin, or is it that somehow, the fee (or transaction) gets encrypted and a new miner has to mine it. It is described as: all the miners compete to find the next new Bitcoin, but there is also Proof of Work (to get a fraction of Bitcoin), but there is no mentioning of the miner getting a transaction fee. How does it factor into the flow or procedure?
