make -s should work, although I've not tried it with ports.

You surely can use '>' with sudo. Perhaps you're not quoting the
command properly, so you're actually redirecting the sudo output to a
file to which the non-superuser does not have write access?
sudo sh -c "ls > /foo" works as expected
sudo ls > /tmp/foo works too, since /tmp is writable.
