Great gmake did the trick!

Now, the last problem, when I try to run blender I get

Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0" ?

I'm running X via vnc.

Ah, drat is that still there ? It's no longer needed. I'll remove it
right away. The 'normal' Makefile works fine for FreeBSD.

FreeBSD comes with its own make, which is a version of pmake.
This make is incompatible with GNU-make, which is what the blender
makefiles are written in. So you have to use GNU-make (from
/usr/ports/devel/gmake) it installs gmake in /usr/local/bin/ .

If you set your environment variable $MAKE to gmake
    for (t)csh : setenv MAKE gmake
    for (ba)sh : export MAKE=3Dgmake

then you can also use my filter and colorizer
blender/source/tools/hmake/hmake as a gmake wrapper.

Succes !
