make and gmake missing

I'm trying to install the latest perl, but it is saying that make and gmake are missing. Where do I get them from, and if on the install CDs how do I get them off the disks (run install again?)?

If you look on Slackware disc 1, there is a file called PACKAGES.TXT which lists the contents of the installation including which subdirectory you can find a specific package in. If you run (as root) PKGTOOL, you can point to the installation directory and install or remove any packages.
