What is "unix" here?
There are many flavors of Unix around the most famous nowadays
is Linux which I guess you are *not* using.

Tell us what
     "uname -a"
gives (or other relevant information about your "Unix").

which I guess is because "make" is not in your PATH, while it
still exists on your computer / file server.

Do you have a system administrator (person!) for your unix
environment?  If yes, ask her/him !
If no, you probably should learn quite a bit more about your
unix by reading a basic introduction...
