Are you using the option "-f Makefile" exactly, character for character?
When a makefile with that exact name exists in the current directory?
That should just work; there's no environment variable to set, and no
default path other than the current directory.
Try experimenting in a directory where you have no makefile:
~$ ls *akefile
ls: cannot access *akefile: No such file or directory
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
~$ touch Makefile; make
make: *** No targets. Stop.
~$ echo 'all:' >Makefile; make
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
~$ make --version
