you should not have to disable any options to compile quake2.
you simply need to use 'gmake' on BSD systems, instead of 'make'.
'make' on a BSD system is BSD make and icculus quake2 uses GNU style
makefiles, thus requiring the GNU make program.

If you don't have gmake, it is in ports somewhere. Off the top of my
head, I would bet its in /usr/ports/devel/gmake.
