me stupid; me uninstalled make :-(

Hi all,

I know I am very stupid to have done this, but I have uninstalled make (wanted to uninstall only a specific version, but got it all wrong)from a gentoo installation. And guess what...It doesn't want to reinstall : make not found

All I'm asking for is a way to reinstall make; without having to reinstall getnoo from scratch.

Thank you in advance,

Try to get make binary from someone with similar hardware (platform: 32 or 64 bit is the most important thing). It should work and allow you to make new make.
