I will leave it to the actual FreeBSD maintainers to comment on the
first (snipped) part.

But where do you see license problems with dmake?

Every source file of the dmake package contains:

--      Copyright (c) 1996,1997 by WTI Corp.  All rights reserved.
--      This program is NOT free software; you can redistribute it and/or
--      modify it under the terms of the Software License Agreement Provided
--      in the file <distribution-root>/readme/license.txt.

and that license.txt is GPL Version 1, February 1989. It's not BSD license,
so what? Is GNU make illegal too?

Please refrain from posting uninformed and false accusations.
