Make button

Hello There,

I use Makefiles to manage many kinds of projects, and would like to have
a "Make button" on the toolbar so that when I'm using the mouse I can
save my file and then just hit the button without confirming
compile-command.  The idea is to have a button available whenever
there's a Makefile in the current directory.

I wrote the following according to what I read in the Elisp manual:

;; attempt to make a "Make" button appear in every buffer where the
;; default directory has a Makefile; perhaps cedet has something like this
(define-key global-map [tool-bar make] 
  '(menu-item "Make"
             :visible t
             :help "Run make"
             :enable (file-exists-p (concat default-directory "Makefile"))
             :image (image :file "refresh.png")))

After I evaluate this, the screen blinks (the frame is redrawn), but no
new button appears.  What am I missing?  Is there any much easier way (a
la easymenu) to do this?
