I think that packages that needs GNU Make should have a simple
makefile for any old Make, which invokes GNU Make.  That is so that
(./configure; make install) will work provided GNU Make is available
under some conventional name, even if it isn't called 'make'.

Since Emacs already "assumes GNU Make", I wonder whether it does that.

I see that Emacs comes with a file GNUmakefile
and configuring creates Makefile.  What is the job
of each of these files, and how do they relate to each other?
