Passing Options to Dependancies During make

How would one go about passing OPTIONS to a dependancy during a port make.
PORTA depends upon PORTB, but to build PORTB correctly so that is has some
functionality required to operate correctly with PORTA you have to set some
option (WITH_XXX) during the build process of PORTB. How can one configure
the PORTA Makefile to tell the PORTB Makfile to use a specific option?
Is this possible?
If we set WITH_XXX=yes during the make of PORTA, will this be passed down
to the build process of PORTB?
(e.g. cd /usr/ports/PORTA; make WITH_XXX=yes)
