Since there is no Makefile, you will need to explicitly replace the $(MAKE) with the gcc or cc command with the options you want. In the "install" section, again, you will need to replace the $(MAKE) install with individual install commands to put the libraries where they are supposed to go.

BTW, a library package may not be the best thing to learn packaging. A package which produces a single executable is much easier.
