new user of portmaster, and I hope my answer isn't just making noise.
I mostly use it on remote systems without a ports tree or source to pull
in pre-compiled packages, so maybe I don't have anything intellegent to say.
(made in a tinderbox, with env variables in ../tb/scripts/env/etc).
I do think I like portmaster more than portupgrade. it was kinda funny
watching what happens with portupgrade when you upgraded ruby :-)
and, trying to keep pkgdb -Fa/-Fu, -Fuped in sync was maddening.
anyway, back to your issue.
'man portmaster' shows this option (which was an option to portupgrade
[-m arguments for make]
portupgrade -R foo -m'BATCH=yes http_proxy=http://126.96.36.199:5'
(if you have more than one env variable you might need the single quotes)
I remember interesting things I needed to do with the -m in portupgrade also,
don't remember if just '-m-DBATCH' or '-mBATCH=yes' was right.
Also, surprised that env in make.conf didn't do it.
one more experiment (I have not tried).. what about /usr/local/etc/portmaster.rc?
