Ipe doesn't find the standard stylesheet.  It should normally be in 
(with your path) /opt/ipe-7/share/ipe/7.0.8/styles/basic.isy

make install should have put it there.  If it isn't, you should 
investigate what went wrong with "make install".  If you go into the 
"src/ipe" directory and say "make install", you should see what it is 
doing - are the paths correct?

Also note that if you called "make" as "make IPEPREFIX=/opt/ipe-7" then 
you also need to do "make install" as "make install IPEPREFIX=/opt/ipe-7"
