You need to install make.
You're probabally using some Redhat-like
distribution such as Fedora or Suse, no?
I don't use Redhat, but from what I understand,
Redhat users install software as follows.
You go to www.rpmfind.net and search for
make.rpm. Install it into your /tmp
directory, and type
cd /tmp
su (type root password)
rpm -Uvh make.rpm

Alternatly, you dig out the disks
that your operating system came on
and install make via whatever
installation program you find in the
start menu.

Good luck,
