9.18.16 fails for me to build when MANPAGES and DOCS are disabled:
/usr/bin/make  all-am

By reading Bug 270286 and
https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/bind9/-/issues/3681#note_359741 the problem
is that sphinx is implicitly found (installed by other means) and used, but the
Makefile processing requires gmake, BSD make fails here. Read also how
Restructured Text substitutions work and they are passed through the Makefile.

I see two ways to solve this problem:
(a) always say: USES=gmake
(b) apply the following patch for 9.18.14+:
diff --git a/dns/bind918/Makefile b/dns/bind918/Makefile
index 5410e2297e31..92cd005bf74f 100644
--- a/dns/bind918/Makefile
+++ b/dns/bind918/Makefile
@@ -179,0 +180,4 @@ BUILD_DEPENDS+=     cmocka>0:sysutils/cmocka
+CONFIGURE_ENV+=        ac_cv_path_SPHINX_BUILD=
which basically reverts
except for the value.
