It seems that on FreeBSD, ${MAKE} is set to the name of the binary you 
invoke (gnumake is a hard-link to gmake in this example):

[phs at thinkpad ~]$ cat Makefile
        echo ${MAKE}

[phs at thinkpad ~]$ make
echo make
[phs at thinkpad ~]$ gmake
echo gmake
[phs at thinkpad ~]$ gnumake
echo gnumake

Anyways, attached is an updated version of the initial patch. It hopefully 
doesn't brake builds on Linux and makes LinuxBIOS (and ADLO) compile on 
FreeBSD. Also, this uses "domainname" instead of "dnsdomainname" on FreeBSD.

I hope this is the correct way to post a patch.
