Exactly: just kill the line that says:
> cp calc-maint.el calc-maint.elc
from the makefile and then try again.
Or much better: see at Emacs Known Problems (C-h P).
There is a patch that fixes this problem and some other as well.
Copy the whole patch to a new buffer, then choose from menu:
Apply patch / To a File (answer y -- patch is already in a buffer),
apply the patch to /home/graffiti/calc-2.02f

BTW: try to get calc-2.02g, (probably a version with the patch applied),
or a cvs version.
