bash: make: command not found


Hey, i'm trying to install OpenSSH on Mandriva Linux 2006.

I found an installation guide online and have been following that. (including installing OpenSSL)

Anyways, i entered the following sets of commands:

PHP Code:
tar xzvf openssl-0.9.8e.tar.gz
cd openssl
-0.9.8e
./config 
it runs but at the end gives me the messages:
"RC4_CHUNK is underfined" and "sh: make: command not found"

the next command in the guide is "make". and when trying that i get "bash: make: command not found"

I downloaded "make-3.81.tar.gz".

I then did the same process as above:

PHP Code:
tar xzvf make-3.81.tar.gz
cd make
-3.81 
i did an "ls" command. and tried "./----------" anything that made sense

(i.e. "INSTALL", "config", "Configure", etc...)

I think if i can install the make package then the openSSL and openSSH installs will be trivial.

Any advice is very welcome! thanks!

Sean

don't install make from source, use urpmi on mandriva or whatever software install tools are there. to that extent, don't install openssl from source either, it's already onyour distro cd's just waiting for you to install it if it's not already perfectly well installed, which is quite likely.
