Most of the popular make(1) targets are documented in the ports(7) man page.
The tutorial on make(1) itself is /usr/share/doc/psd/12.make/paper.ascii.gz
(or you might have a PostScript version there instead, depending on
how you set the PRINTERDEVICE variable in /etc/make.conf)
There's also some stuff in the Developer's Handbook:
However, the best tutorial if you want to progress beyond those
introductory treatments is simply to study the way Makefiles are used
in /usr/ports and /usr/src -- the files in /usr/share/mk and
/usr/ports/Mk are where it's at.
