Make won't make

Hullo all,

I'm trying to compile make, but get the following errors when trying to 
compile it statically (LDFLAGS=-static):
make[2]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/usr/src/make-3.79.1'
gcc  -g -O2 -static -o make  ar.o arscan.o commands.o dir.o expand.o file.o

job.o: In function `load_too_high':
/mnt/lfs/usr/src/make-3.79.1/job.c:1565: undefined reference to `getloadavg'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [make] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/usr/src/make-3.79.1'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/usr/src/make-3.79.1'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

It compiles fine when I do the same dynamically, which is obviously useless 
in a chroot'ed environment.

Can anyone suggest what I can do to fix this problem??

I'm using make-3.79 on my original system, an i586 with slackware 7.
