i think so, but i'm not sure. every time i was trying to build
netbsd's make on a different platform, i just used cc (or gcc)
directly. it seemed okay to me.

the comments at the top
# a very simple makefile...
# You only want to use this if you aren't running NetBSD.
# modify MACHINE and MACHINE_ARCH as appropriate for your target architecture
