If argv is empty then all bets are off of course ;-)

I just had a quick look at Configure for perl 5.8.0 (I had it handy)
and the test for whether MAKE gets set looks more like it would always
think that it was. Further, I don't see that it changes the value of $make
afterwards, though I may have missed something.
Shell lossage might be more likely. Or the args or evironment given to
the configuring of perl might be wrong.
