Technically, what you're asking about is make targets. These
are defined in, and completely dependent on, the makefile, not
make itself. Within the ports tree, a system of makefiles
provides the targets you list above and others. A complete
list is in ports(7).
You can also read the makefiles themselves. make(1) will help
you decipher them.
