This would surprise me, but stranger things have happened.

This is most likely due to your trying to FTP the files to a directory
in which you do not have write permission.  Check to make sure that
you can create files in your destination directory:

cd <wherever>
touch xxx
rm xxx

and then try the FTP again.

A 'which make' will tell you if the file is found AND if it is executable.

Your PATH enviroment variable can't be correct if you can run 'make'
by hand.  I suspect that you checked your .cshrc file, but not your
environment.  If .cshrc is correct, then it is possible that there is
an error in it before the declaration of PATH.  If that is the case,
PATH woudn't get defined (at least not correctly), and the directory
containing 'make' might be left off.
