This is for building the DOS port of Make.  Is that what you wanted?
If so, you lack some basic packages to be able to compile the DOS

If, on the other hand, you wanted to build the MS-Windows version,

pre-compiled binaries of the Windows port of Make:

(If you want the DOS binaries, get instead.)

You don't have the package that is required for building
DJGPP (a.k.a. DOS) ports of GNU software.

You probably don't have the GCC compiler installed, either.
