MAKE command



I've really decided to learn how does MAKE command work. However I know what it does and I know how to use it, but I've never been successful in compiling a package with it.

I'm asking my question since I know MAKE is extremely useful in Linux.

I've downloaded Apache Web Server package and have tried to compile it, but MAKE wants a makefile file. Where can I find it? The best solution is to rename makefile.win to makefile and use it for make file, but MAKE command returns this error:

makefile:50: *** missing separator. Stop.

Any ideas? I really need to install apache by myself. and of course before installation comes compilation.

ThanX so much! ;-)
