make depend (without the 's') all install clean has always worked for me.
I've used that since FreeBSD 2.1 at least.
I would think if it was depends that it would say something like:
make: don't know how to make depend. Stop
So I assume that depend makes dependencies and all makes all options. I've
never really cared what the targets do individually but that's what I use
to build ports, it always builds the dependencies and I've never had
any problems using it. Maybe it's redundant or superfluous but it works
