I don't know if it always comes installed with all distros but there is a version of ps that gives cpu usage when invoked as follows :

ps aux

Not on a linux machine right now so I can't tell you much more. I think that's the bsd version of it.

If you want the CPU usage of ONE application, then you can use "time". Eg:
time make all
