Anyways, you need to upgrade psutils package to fix top.
As for make, you forgot to read the relase notes for libc! There was a bug
in older versions of libc that make depended on. When the bug went away,
make broke. Downgrade to the older libc, upgrade make to the latest, 3.75,
then switch back up to the new libc.
