Description Jov 2017-05-23 09:36:15 UTC
in chapter 2.6 : 
In answering this, two flags will serve you well: -d m and “-p 2”...

make -p 2
usage: make [-BeikNnqrstWwX] 
            [-C directory] [-D variable] [-d flags] [-f makefile]
            [-I directory] [-J private] [-j max_jobs] [-m directory] [-T file]
            [-V variable] [variable=value] [target ...]

This is FreeBSD 10.3R

This documentation is there for history and actually was removed. FreeBSD does not use pmake anymore but bmake.

man of page:
This manual page is intended as a reference document only.  For a more
     thorough description of make and makefiles, please refer to PMake - A

See also make(1), mkdep(1), style.Makefile(5) and `PMake - A Tutorial', located in /usr/share/doc/psd/12.make.

I will open a PR for this.
