Never mind, I found the problem.

FYI: Reports on Google are wrong - they say that you need to use "gmake" 
to build the PostgreSQL server source.  You don't.
I had installed GNU make on FreeBSD, but it installs it under 
"/usr/local/bin/make" - of which the Unix version of make exists under 
"/usr/bin/make."

Just typing "make" builds PostgreSQL just fine with the Unix make.
However, the contrib modules *won't* build with the Unix make - I had to 
run "/usr/local/bin/make" instead of just "make."

HTH someone,

Andy.
