I just installed checkinstall from my 8.0 disks, and ran checkinstall. I got
the following error:

# checkinstall

checkinstall 1.5.1, Copyright 2001 Felipe Eduardo Sanchez Diaz Duran
This software is released under the GNU GPL.

The package documentation directory ./doc-pak does not exist.
Should I create a default set of package docs? [y]: y

Preparing package documentation...OK

*** No known documentation files were found. The new package
*** won't include a documentation directory.

Installing with "make install"...

========================= Installation results ===========================
/var/tmp/checkinstall.JqDitg/ make: command not found

**** Installation failed. Aborting package creation.

Cleaning up...OK


I don't understand why it didn't find make. Is it not installed by default by
Suse 8.0?
