Quite right.  I tried make again and this time I get the same output as

[francois () cerberus nmap-6.00]$ make
Compiling liblua
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/francois/Downloads/nmap-6.00/liblua'
make[1]: `liblua.a' is up to date.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/francois/Downloads/nmap-6.00/liblua'
Compiling liblinear
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/francois/Downloads/nmap-6.00/liblinear'
g++  -c -o linear.o linear.cpp
make[1]: g++: Command not found
make[1]: *** [linear.o] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/francois/Downloads/nmap-6.00/liblinear'
make: *** [liblinear_build] Error 2

This appears to boil down to g++ being missing and me not being able to
figure out how to install it.

The error message is:

[francois () cerberus nmap-6.00]$ make
Makefile:409: makefile.dep: No such file or directory

As you can see, I did not have make available, so I tried gmake instead.

You actually do have make; that first error message you see is the
automatic generation of makefile.dep, which is normal and expected. You
also have gmake, but in all likelihood they both point to the same
