    MAKE should be listed as a program under software in YAST.

    Or get the file from:

    http://www.gnu.org/directory/devel/build/make.html

    What other files does it require??

    possibly the configure script found errors? run it again and see if it gives any error messages. i've found sometimes when ./configure isn't run successfully make doesn't either. and what do you mean you need to run make twice?
