Hmm, that goes into BSD's make system, so read up on it:
less /usr/share/mk/bsd.README
gzcat /usr/share/doc/psd/12.pmake/paper.ascii.gz|less

These are more general C-programming topics though, not specific for FreeBSD. 
I just gave you a BSD make example, cause I knew that'll work out of the box, 
but you can use other systems, like the GNU autotools + gmake or jam.

I'd also look into the following:
man ports
man pkg_add

libnet11-config --help
