Hmm - I'd assume that they would be found in Kubuntu Package Manager
(I don't use KDE and I don't have access to my machine at the moment
to try it out) in the same repository as the Gnome Ubuntu finds them.

Yup - the error you is telling you it can't find the "make" command as
it's in the build-essentials packages which it seems you cant locate
in the repository, and don't have it installed.

You're correct in the first instance.

Which concerns me - the programs in the build-essential package are
required whether you're using Gnome, KDE, Fluxbox, fvwm or any of the
other window managers (or like my laptop where it's console only with
no window manager at all). It shouldn't matter which window manager or
package manager you're using.

What does an 'sudo apt get build-essentials' tell you?
