Tomcat committer here, just discovered this while working on upstream patches
for tomcat-native on FreeBSD.

This happens when building from tomcat-native.git as well as source tarball
1.2.23. This does not happen with www/tomcat-native (explanation follows).

After performing ./buildconf and ./configure, gmake says:
> osipovmi at deblndw011x:~/var/Projekte/tomcat-native/native (master %=)
> $ LC_ALL=C gmake
> gmake: *** No rule to make target '.MAKE', needed by 'all-recursive'.  Stop.

But there is no such target in tcnative.

> $ grep -r \\.MAKE .
> ./build/rules.mk:all-recursive depend-recursive: .MAKE
> ./build/rules.mk:clean-recursive distclean-recursive extraclean-recursive: .MAKE

./build/rules.mk is copied during ./configure from
> cp /usr/local/share/apr/build-1/apr_rules.mk /net/home/osipovmi/var/Projekte/tomcat-native/native/build/rules.mk

which is

> $ grep -r \\.MAKE /usr/local/share/apr/build-1/apr_rules.mk
> all-recursive depend-recursive: .MAKE
> clean-recursive distclean-recursive extraclean-recursive: .MAKE

I have then compiled apr-1.7.x straight from the Subversion repo from ASF and
> osipovmi at deblndw011x:/tmp/apr-1.7.x
> $ grep -r \\.MAKE build-1/

So this exists in the port only. It turns out that the port Makefile does this

* Mark recursive targets with .MAKE to fix parallel builds with bmake.

Whether this is still required today and why BSD make ignores .MAKE, I don't
know. gmake chokes on it with tomcat-native.

The reason why www/tomcat-native never failed is that patch-Makefile.in removes
gmake recipes and makes it bmake compliant. If you force gmake, it will
instantly fail.
If this post-patch is still required, it shall be removed with pre-install, but
no later than in STAGEDIR. This will make this Makefile work with bmake AND
