make without /bin/sh

Ok so I completed all of part 5 and am starting to install the basic 
system.   Now here's the problem... when I run "make install" in 
man-pages, it prompts that it can't find "/bin/sh" which is fine 
because I haven't installed the sym-link.

My question is... how can I go about running "make install" without 
even creating the sym-link and actually never have a "bin" directory.  
Obviously "/bin/sh" is hard-wired into make or gcc or something else... 
but is there a way to compile make & gcc so that it looks for the shell 
somewhere else.... say SHELL=/executables/shell
