It's telling you permission denied because the "commands" you are putting aren't commands at all! Make.conf is just a config filel When you try to run a non-executable as a program it seems that this is the error it gives you. Are you trying run make and X windows? To run make, just type make. To run X, just type startx. Hope this is the problem.

Put "exec gnome-session" in your .xinitrc file. Make sure that gnome-session is in your $PATH, though (type "which gnome-session" and make sure that the command is found).
