It depends.  If options are OPTIONS (in the ports sense), they
are saved and independent of portupgrade.  If options are
makefile options specified in pkgtools.conf, they are only
taken into accont if the port is (re)build explicitly; they
are not taken into account if a port is (re)built as a
dependency of another port.  In plain text: if port B has
options in pkgtools.conf, and port A has B as its dependency,
and you portinstall/portupgrade A, B will be built (if needs
be) without pkgtools.conf options.  Be careful.
