Subject: Don't set MAKE unless necessary

As pointed out in this thread: MakeMaker always setting MAKE can screw things up for gmake and makepp. They set MAKE to magical things in the case of doing recursive builds. It looks like VMS is the only "mainstream" make that doesn't set MAKE (double check dmake and nmake) so the code to set MAKE can be made VMS-only. Otherwise, if we're guessing based on $Config{make} then $Config{make_set_make} can be used.
