installing make - problem

so i downloaded the suse personal distro, and i'm slowly getting stuff on it that needs to be on it. specifically i got gcc working, thanks to a thread here on linuxquestions.

now i'm having trouble with the program 'make'. i found out, by trying to use it, that suse 9.1 personal download doesn't come with make on it.

so i downloaded make version make-3.80, and i'm following the directions to install it.

directions say to run the config file (./configure), then afterwards, if you don't have make already installed on your system, run 'sh'.

so i ran the config file, and afterwards i went to run the file.

it went through compiling up through hash.c with no problems. when it tries to compile remote-@REMOTE@.c it comes back with this:

gcc:  ./remote-@REMOTE@.c: No such file or directory
gcc:  no input files
i'm not sure what to do, can someone help me with this? thanks in advance!

I'd suggest you just go and download the SuSE
rpm's for the respective packages, rather than
trying to build everything from source.
