You can't compile make without a C compiler.  Heck, you can't compile
the C compiler without a C compiler!!  It's not written in assembly you
know... and if it were, how would you compiler the assembler??

Basically, you have to go get an already-built binary package for the
compiler and install that; every Linux distribution under the sun has
these so there's no need to build it yourself.
