Pleas check if you have gcc installed.
also look for autoconfigure, automake, gettext etc..

Do you have SuSE Professional?
Dunno if gcc comes with SuSe personal.

If you have professional, please start Yast2, goto the software installation module, then filter on package groups (or similar phrase, i use the Dutch version ), goto 'development' and select the following packages in the list:
GNU Binutils
autoconfig
automake
cpp
gcc
gcc-c++
gdb
gettext
glib-devel
glib2-devel
gnome-libs-devel
gtk2-devel

install those packages and whatever dependency suse comes up with.

If you don't have suse 9.0 professional, please checkout ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/ for the proper packages.

Okay, so make is probably not installed.
Startup YaSt again, goto the softwaremodule and use the searchtool tool to find 'make' .
The corresponding description is "the GNU make command"
