I tried exactly what you said.
Make install clean
But it tried to search for make-3.80.tar.bz2 and tried fetching over the
net and did not find it. (I think because of our firewall). Now I have
ftp'd the file in the /usr/ports/distfiles/ the above file and tried
running it and found that it has dependencies on gettext.
I copied gettext* there and tried installing gettext and found it has
dependencies on some other stuff.
How and where I can get everything from, so that I can get this running.
I AM NOT JOKING. I don't know stuff about unix world as I am new.
Appreciate your help friends!!
Thanks a lot

Stop making your life difficult:
cd /usr/ports/devel/gmake && make install clean
then use gmake instead of make.
