  The `make` coming with FreeBSD is BSD one, it doesn't support some GNU extensions.

  Haven't found other "make" uses. And it fixed the test, after all.
  > Does the call rely on some GNU make features?  If so, that should be added at least as comment in the code, so it is clear why plain "make" does not work.
  `MakeFileResolver::resolveIncludePathInternal` calls make with `--no-print-directory` flag, which isn't supported by BSD make.
  > Also, is "gmake" part of the normal FreeBSD system? Or would we need to check first this exists in the runtime?
  It is not, but what we can do if there is no `gmake`? Lets just require packagers to install gmake along with KDevelop.
