Nikolas, sorry for hijacking your reply, I missed the original post.

4.4 is *very* old. It's possible that there are makefile constructs in
the makefiles of the Ports infrastructure that were not supported by
make(1) back then.

How difficult/risky would it be to update your base-system to some more
modern version of the 4.X branch, i.e. RELENG_4?
