To build the basic server and some plugins nbdkit needs nothing except
-Linux and reasonably recent gcc or clang.
+Linux or FreeBSD, and:

Theoretically, automake should produce makefiles compatible with BSD make as long as you didn't introduce any GNU make'isms in your Makefile.am files. I don't know if the problem was an actual GNU make'ism, or a bug in BSD make, but I'm also not too worried about this (after all, both libvirt and qemu require GNU make as a conscious choice, so people on BSD systems are already used to using gmake rather than figuring out whether BSD make can do the job).
