Thats not windows related, make works the same way on all platforms.
The arguments for make are:
- options for make himself
- targets (which parts of code to build)
- variable definitions (which may modify the making of the targets)

There are some commonly used targets with self explaining names
- clean (tries to delete all during the build process generated files)
- all (builds all targets -if you have more than one-)
- install (installs the former build targets)

If you want to know more about how make works, look for documentation.
There is a lot of.

There is somewhere a doc about the fpc build process, google for "fpc
build faq".

I think that is not development related, if you have more questions it
may be better to visit a forum or the general fpc-pascal mailing list.
