+ /etc/make.conf now included earlier.
+ sys.mk now includes /etc/make.conf and {local,src}.sys.mk earlier
+ than previously.
+ This makes it simple to interpose external toolchains etc.
+ However it may cause problems for users who have things like::
+
+ INSTALL+= something
+
+ in /etc/make.conf, since INSTALL is not yet defined.
+ A safe fix for that is to have::
+
+ INSTALL?= install
+ INSTALL+= something
+
+ which is equivalent to previous behavior.

FreeBSD's old make (fmake) has been removed from the system. It is
available as the devel/fmake port or via pkg install fmake.
