Ah that provides an explanation, thanks Peter! I installed GNU make
before trying to build Postgres as there was another program I needed it
for, so I never crossed this problem while building Postgres.
Yes, regarding make, I've noticed that all GNU stuff I've compiled on
FreeBSD gets installed into /usr/local/ by default, which keeps it
separate from the system programs in /usr.
