Sure; make is language-agnostic. For that matter, it doesn't even need
to be used in conjunction with programming. I use make with LaTeX
projects to generate the .dvi and .ps, and with docbook projects for the
same purpose. I use make in my /etc/postfix directory to automatically
regenerate the postfix maps and restart postfix if a map has changed. 

Any time you have one file that is the result of running a program on
anothe file, it's a good candidate to automate the generation of that
file with make.
