This missing INSTALL file has been reported before.  It's surely a
poser because I haven't touched that package building stuff in a while.
I thought automake just handled it.  Clearly something changed :)

GNU make ships with a "build.sh" shell script that can be run (after
configure) to compile make when you don't have a make program.

This is discussed in the README file.

There's a build_w32.bat as well, for Windows.
