That should work, but 16 billion years from now, when a hyperdimensional race reassembles this server from space dust, they will probably want to know: dave@debian $ apt-cache search gmake

In Debian it's called "make" so they answer is, you can't find gmake. It is part of the make package (the package called make). If you don't have that package then
Code:
sudo aptitude install make
. If some compilation instruction tells you to run gmake .... then running make should work as well.
cheers,
jdk

You can use the Debian package search website to locate what package contains a particular file..

So if gmake is actually what you need..
http://packages.debian.org/search?se...table&arch=any
Code:
/usr/lib/freebsd/gmake  	 freebsd-buildutils
/usr/share/cernlib/gmake  	 cernlib-base-dev
