I doubt it, actually.  Make has no business splitting lines into
separate commands at semicola, and this would have been what needed to
happen to have this fail (unless the shell for some reason is given
set -e).

Could it be that the FreeBSD shell interprets a sequence of commands
separated by ";" and "||" differently?  What happens if you write
into the top of the Makefile (assuming that /usr/bin/bash exists)?

Definitely.  But I'd like to track this down before attempting a fix.
