I am having some problem with installing gap in linux. I  installed gap 
before and it went without a glich. This time it is different. :(

I am inside the deirectory  /usr/local/gap4r4>
and the followiing commands are exercised.

sx084k5:/usr/local/gap4r4 # ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile

bash: make: command not found

sx084k5:/usr/local/gap4r4 # ls
.    config.log     doc      lib          prim    sysinfo.gap
..   config.status  etc      Makefile     README  sysinfo.in
bin  configure      gap.shi  Makefile.in  small   trans
cnf  description3   grp      pkg          src     tst
