I think Pascal was saying that you Makefile (not /usr/bin/make) might
not be in the same directory as your code.
If you don't have a makefile there, you can also do 'make -f
pathtomakefile' and emacs will remember it for the next time.
If you don't have a makefile at all, it's time to create one.
Bonus: Check out M-x next-error. I have both compile and next-error
bound to Fn keys since I use them constantly.
