I don't know the difference, but it seems potentialy dangerous to
remove old make without notice ?

In FreeBSD-9.3 :
  bmake is not default, merely there
        -r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  518032 Nov  5 16:58 /usr/bin/bmake*
        -r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  453176 Nov  5 16:58 /usr/bin/make*
  & man make has No Warning people should migrate to bmake.

  Has Only one /usr/bin/*make (& no make.old)
  & No warning that it's a new make called bmake or what if any differences
  might be from make in 9.

cd ~ ; find . -type f -name Makefile | wc -l    # 739

Use of FreeBSD is not merely to rebuild FreeBSD, but to support users who
want to trust FreeBSD to provide predictable functional stability.
