I don't know much about this, I just know that current is going to use bmake,
and the only incompatibility I have spotted so far from our make to bmake is the
:L becoming :tl and :U becoming :tu

Once 8.3 and 9.0 are EOLed all version of freebsd make support both syntax, so
the ports could safely use both bmake and make (once we change in the ports tree
all the :U and :L occurence.)

which means everything should just continue working ootb for everyone on
supported version of FreeBSD :)
