A usual approach to install some *ix'ish software for a single user --
if one doesn't want to overwrite system's installed packages -- is to do
this under $HOME/usr, where executables end up in $HOME/usr/bin and
adding that in front of $PATH pulls them in first before others. What
I'd do is to create $HOME/usr/src and within there untar the make
tarball. You'll get a directory like $HOME/usr/src/make-3.82/ and in
there invoke

./configure --prefix=$HOME/usr
make check
make install

If everything goes well you then should have the executable

Prepend $HOME/usr/bin to your user's PATH and open a new shell, invoke
make -v
and verify that it says 3.82

BUT, your problem with cppunittester.exe seems to be unrelated and will
not vanish by using a newer make, else I would be surprised..
