You don't appear to have finished the build process!

You need to run
$ make menuselect
$ make
$ sudo make install

(if `make` stops with errors, fix them and run that step again.)

There is no way that `sudo service asterisk start` should be able to start 
anything successfully if there isn't an asterisk binary in the path.  (But 
systemd is a law unto itself.)
