Uhm, make is available in the same directory as all the other cdk
commands like ls, bash, ...
Perhaps you didn't install cdk.exe, but only usertools.exe ?

AFAIK that depends on how you "ported" the package.
If it doesn't support the native Win32 window manager and you didn't do
anything to change this behaviour, i.e. changed the sources, you get
what you requested - a program, that belongs to the U*ix world
more than to the Windows world. Therefore you would need an X server.
