The correct answer to this question depends on which version of
GNU/Linux you are using.  Red Hat?  Ubuntu?  Debian?  SuSE?  Something

All these distributions will have a package for GNU make, that you can
install using their package management tools.  You will likely need
other tools as well: if you don't have make you most likely don't have a
compiler either for example.

This is really a distro-specific question and the answer is best found
on a distro-specific forum or mailing list.

If you really want to obtain and build it yourself (assuming you have a
compiler) then you can do so; there are some pointers to the download
site, build instructions, etc. below.
