To reinstall the original make, there's 2 options.

1) if you compiled from sources, all you need to do is

cp /usr/obj/usr/src/usr.bin/make/make /usr/bin/

2) if you installed from CD, mount the cd, go to the /bin directory
   on the CD and issue the command

cat bin.?? | tar --unlink -xpzf - -C / ./usr/bin/make
