Not particularly!! Don't know what it is but it doesn't _appear_ to be 
GNU.  According to "man make" it is a "FreeBSD General Command."
I can tell you that "./configure && make && make install" works and 
builds a working Postgres server just fine, it's just the contribs it 
doesn't build.

[root(at)byron ~]# make -v
make: no target to make.

[root(at)byron ~]# /usr/bin/make -v
make: no target to make.

[root(at)byron ~]# /usr/local/bin/make -v
