 The root of confusion is not in FreeBSD :) but in my thinking.
I totally forgot about the existence of BSD make untill it came
back to me:
 During installation of ATLAS some shell script or C program calls
'make' by the name "make", and I totally forgot it can be not the 'make'
I called the build process with.
After I was explained about it (by ATLAS people), everything went just fine.

Thanks,
  Dima.
