No. "make" was deemed unportable at the Distutils design/planning
meeting at IPC7.

Umm, what if someone adds a command to the Distutils? This is *really*
fragile. If you're determined to use such a kludge, why not
python setup.py --help-commands | sed '/^ *$/ q'
to quit after the blank line?
Anyways, the idea of distributing a Makefile is just plain bogus.
People should get used to
python setup.py install
It's not *that* hard.
