no, it shouldn't.

A) its not in RHEL base, therefore its not in CentOS base.

B) Base contains NO development tools, is intended for deploying RPM 
packaged software only.

if you need make, odds are, you'll also need more development tools 
(gcc, etc etc), I'd suggest ...

     yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
