I beg to differ.

Both glibc pages have time consuming post-make install commands.
Both llh pages have no make install.
util-linux in chapter 5 doesn't have a make install.
perl in chapter 5 doesn't have a make install.
zlib has 2 make installs.
mktemp has 2 make installs.
texinfo has 2 make installs.
e2fsprogs has 2 make installs.
hotplug has no make install.

That's 11 pages that might lead to confusion.
