INSTALL says one should run "./configure" but it's not included when
downloading from the git repo. It's included in .gitignore which may explain

% git clone https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/make.git
% cd make
% ./configure
-bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

% autoconf
configure.ac:32: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.ac:45: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_AR
configure.ac:54: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION
configure.ac:55: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_GNU_GETTEXT
configure.ac:74: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_CC_C_O
configure.ac:86: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_STRUCT_ST_MTIM_NSEC
configure.ac:113: error: possibly undefined macro: pds_AC_DOS_PATHS
configure.ac:179: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONDITIONAL
configure.ac:450: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_WITH_DMALLOC

% ./configure
configure: error: cannot find install-sh, install.sh, or shtool in config

A lot of files seems to be missing so I ended up having to extract them from
the latest packaged release.

% wget -qO- https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/make/make-4.2.1.tar.bz2 | tar
--strip-components=1 -xjvf -
% git reset --hard
% ./configure
% make
% make check

The system uptime program believes the load average to be:
 08:55:48 up 5 days, 12:45,  2 users,  load average: 0.08, 0.07, 0.01
The GNU load average checking code thinks:
1-minute: 0.080000  5-minute: 0.070000  15-minute: 0.010000

 Regression PASSED: GNU Make 4.2.90 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) built with gcc
