For Vim 6+
mkdir -p $HOME/.vim/ftplugin
echo "setlocal noet" > $HOME/.vim/ftplugin/make
And add these to your .vimrc file
" Turn on filetype support.
" Turn on filetype plugins.
filetype plugin on
Automatic indentation, btw, is controlled via this setting, so turn
it off or on as you please.
" Turn on filetype indenting by default.
filetype indent on
If you're not using Vim 6+, this can be done with an autocommand.
