What am I missing? When I try to run $make I get the message "bash:

You're missing the "make" package. In the future, if you'd like to find out which package contains a particular command, use the package search page at <> and search for, in this example, "bin/make(.exe| )". Igor P.S. I had a nagging feeling this was somewhere in the FAQ, but couldn't find it. If it's not there already, could this be added?

Looks like I goofed on my reply and sent it only to Richard.

The FAQ entry for this is:

What packages should I download?

But I wouldn't mind if it were augmented to something like the following:

What packages should I download or how do I find out which package xxx
utility is in?
