After you install make and gcc (Chris displayed his powers of prescience!)
and re-run configure again, you probably run make without editing the
Makefile.  As I understand it, configure is creating a Makefile that is
adjusted for what is available on your system.

configure seemed to look for automake and autoconf, so you might want to
install those packages, too.  It should make make report some "yes"es where
it currently reports "no"s.
