FreeBSD is supposed to work "out of the box."  I have had trouble with
NetBSD, and got it to the point where the posix BSP compiles, but it
dies somewhere in the getjmp/setjmp code...  haven't had time to figure
it out yet.

configure should be invoking GNU make, not BSD make. try

MAKE=gmake [...]/configure [...]

and see what happens.
