The file README that comes with the Make distribution says this near
its beginning:

    If you need to build GNU Make and have no other `make' program to use,
    you can use the shell script `build.sh' instead.  To do this, first run
    `configure' as described in INSTALL.  Then, instead of typing `make' to
    build the program, type `sh build.sh'.  This should compile the program
    in the current directory.  Then you will have a Make program that you can
    use for `./make install', or whatever else.

As you see, you are not in the vicious circle.
