I installed it and it just worked. And the source code doesn't even contain the word "Missing" except in the .info files. So we're back to the square one: you are NOT using GNU make for whatever reason. Another hint is the message format: GNU make uses something like Makefile:1: *** some error message No quotes, no comma and three stars. To nail it down furter, I just did a "strings /usr/bin/pmake" (which is BSD make on Linux) - and guess what? It contains exactly the messages you got.
