problem running code that uses imake


I am new to Linux and have asked several Linux enthusiasts about my problem, however I am wondering at this point if it is a lost cause, since many have been unable to help me solve my problem.

I am unable to run a certain C code which uses the obsolete compilation method 'imake'. I would kindly like to ask if there is any way that I can run this code. Am I required to install anything? Or do I have to change the code in some way so that it could run on a more updated compilation method?

I really appreciate any help in this regard. Thank you very much.

Your question is unclear. Are you unable to compile/link the C code, or are you unable to run the object code resulting from building with imake? What is your objection to using gmake? What exactly are the symptoms, beyond 'unable to run'?
If the C code is written to be runnable on a Linux host, then there is no obvious reason that you could not do so.
