| When you say "make", is that the same make program most c++ programs use?

Yes.  Most C programs use it too, and other build processes.  Make is
not tied to any particular language or compiler.  For C++, g++ is
commonly used as the compiler, and make simply runs the compiler as
necessary.  Make can just as easily be used to build anything that has
a source file and a shell command to obtain the output.  Examples
include creating PS or PDF files from a LaTeX document or creating PS
or PNG representations of an xfig .fig file.  In fact, I use make (or
scons) to do just that.

Go ahead.  Make is quite useful, though it does have its limitations.
I've been working with scons quite a bit recently, and it is pretty
nice.  It doesn't have direct java support yet, though, but it can
still be used to build anything from anything (like make).

As you start learning make, read this article too :

I haven't heard of it.  I am familiar with 'ant', a build tool written
in java and geared specifically for java.  I think the XML-format
build file is cumbersome to work with, though.
