Install the "make" package from the "Devel" category (you may also need
others, see <>.

@David: This is a pretty frequently asked question, but I couldn't find
the exact FAQ entry for it.  Perhaps we could add a 'Where is "make"
("gcc", "vi", etc)' heading to the above FAQ entry?  It'll need to be
augmented to also describe how to search for files, something like "If you
need to know which package contains a particular file, search for that
file's name on <>.  For executables, especially
with short names, it helps to prepend 'bin/' to the filename."
