Probably it is.

The basic idea behind the FreeBSD ports or Gentoo portage is that each
port only describes its own specific setup in a meta-Makefile, plus a
couple of description files, plus possibly patches.  The main logic
sits in a dozen or so (at least on FreeBSD) include Makefiles that
form the ports framework.  For FreeBSD, these are heavily tied to the
BSD make intrinsics (and if BSD make misses a feature that is needed,
it will simply be added), so my guess is that Gentoo has adapted that
framework for GNU make instead.
