umm... what, in particular, are you looking to do?  how many dependencies do you have?  are you using libraries of code? standard locations for your own source/includes?

Your question is very broad in scope and I think it would be better if you familiarise yourself with the utility first and then ask more specific questions.

Make is described in detail, as well as guidance on how to use it, in one of the UNIX in a Nutshell series of books from O'Reilly Associates. See
