The =make= program is a dependency-tracking build utility that is
distributed with *nix systems. There are several =make= programs,
but they each generally look for a file named =makefile= or
=Makefile=, which contains rules for building one or more targets.
=ob-makefile.el= helps the =Org mode= user tangle a =makefile= using
source code blocks.
Requirements and Setup
ob-makefile.el is useful only for tangling a
=makefile=. Hopefully, at some point in the future it will support
make program is a somewhat unusual *nix utility because the
=TAB= character is an important part of the syntax.
Emacs includes a makefile-mode for editing the
For tangling to work, the variable
be non-nil, so that tabs aren't lost in the Org mode buffer.

Currently, there is no need to activate makefile with
=org-babel-do-load-languages=, but it won't hurt to do so.

Org Mode Features for Makefile Source Code Blocks
There are no language-specific default values or header arguments for
=makefile= doesn't support sessions.
makefile source code blocks currently don't return results. They
exist solely for tangling.
