"make -C ..." causes error in net/tkabber/Makefile, line 17

I am running FreeBSD 4.8-p14; and the make(1) man page lists -C

     -C directory
          Change to directory while running.

...However, "make -V PORTVERSION" in net/tkabber" produces this...

  make: illegal option -- C
  usage: make [-Beiknqrstv] [-D variable] [-d flags] [-E variable] [-f makefile]
              [-I directory] [-j max_jobs] [-m directory] [-V variable]
              [variable=value] [target ...]
  "Makefile", line 17: warning: "make -C /usr3/ports/net/tkabber/../../devel/tcllib -V PORTVERSION" returned non-zero status

...the particular Makefile line 17 is...

  TCLLIBVER!=     ${MAKE} -C ${.CURDIR}/../../devel/tcllib -V PORTVERSION

...and yes, devel/tcllib does exist; running "make -V PORTVERSION"
there produces "1.4".

What could be the problem?
