You created a Makefile to compile a single source file? Have you tried:

  gcc -o abc abc.c
  ./abc

a) Did you create the makefile?
b) You forgot the / . .abc is a hidden file ./abc is a file in the current directory.

fremsley has given you a simple solution for small files. makefiles are used for programs which contain a number of source files, like say, the kernel. (This helps in reducing the overhead of typing common options and filenames all over again, when a small change is made)
