Depends on which distro you're running. If you don't have make, there's
a good you don't have gcc either. (although the configure step often
checks for this) Probably missing some other dev packages too.

On Debian, 'apt-get install make' would install make... or 'apt-get
install gcc' which will install make also as a dependency.
