Compiling Angband on Debian

Yesterday I did a completely fresh install of Debian and today I'm trying to compile Angband on the brand-new system using the instructions at

However, I am getting an error message after the command
$ ./configure --prefix=$HOME
The script outputs a couple screens of lines that look fine, with various successful checks and such. Then it exits with the messages:

checking if make supports SysV-style inclusion... ./configure: line 4748: make: command not found
configure: error: A 'make' supporting SysV file inclusion is required.
I've read the code in .configure around line 4748, googled the error message, checked the Debian wiki, etc. ... but to no avail ... my kung-fu just isn't strong enough ...

Any help would be much appreciated!

maybe this

make: command not found

rings a bell Try a
apt-get install make
I guess there will be more things missing, gcc for example.

Proud candidate for the Angband Darwin Award!

Ah, yes. Now I feel foolish.

On the other hand, Angband is now working perfectly again -- thank you!
