bmake has its own conditionals like .if, .ifdef, .else, etc., i.e.
it is itself incompatible with GNU make. I'm thinking of something
you can compile the Linux kernel[0] with. Ever noticed how some
developers include a Makefile and a GNUmakefile?*

pkgsrc is an example. You can't use GNU make with it, and it ships with
bmake -- unless it's NetBSD, whose bmake is just make(1).
