Please create the instruction of command "make"

Hi,

I think the "make" command is important for installing open source packages. Due to some reason, Apple will cut off many functions bundled in macOS server app, like DNS. I have to install BIND manually, for which the command "make" is needed.

Re: Please create the instruction of command "make"

I havent documented the make command yet because its not a standard 'out of the box' command on macOS and 99% of mac users won't be compiling their own software from source.

Theres also the issue where you could have different versions installed by different package managers or the App store. So I think this is an example where I would encourage people to just read the man page for the version they have installed to be sure it is the correct/matching version.
