Yes, and that makes sense. What I am seeing is that if configure is
called from a shell invoked by gmake, the configuration process will
error out as follows:

Creating Makefile in src
 + configured for FreeBSD 3.0 platform
 + setting C compiler to gcc
 + setting C pre-processor to gcc -E
 + checking for system header files
 + adding selected modules
make: don't know how to make w. Stop
 + doing sanity check on compiler and options

Calling 'gmake' in this test case solves the problem. One fix would be 
to set MAKE=make if MAKE is undefined, but I'm not sure that is really 
the problem here. Any feedback would be welcome.
