Portmaster's operation and make.conf are completely separate. What
portmaster does is essentially provide a wrapper for the functions of
the ports infrastructure. Whenever portmaster runs 'make <something>'
in a port your make.conf knobs will be honored.
I expect that what you are seeing is a difference in how portmaster
works vs. how other tools work. I would suggest that you read the man
page for portmaster thoroughly, then if you have questions start a new
thread on the freebsd-ports at freebsd.org list.
