This is rather new and not as well publicized as it might have been.
As ports are updated, configuration options are stored in
/var/ports/PORTNAME/options. If you want to flush this for a port, 'make
rmconfig' will do the job. You will be asked for options the next time
you make the port, or you can 'make config' on a port to have it ask again.
