Passing an argument to a port

Can someone clue me in on how to pass a variable to a port during make?
I am trying to customize the behavior of mail/imap-uw and mail/cclient.
They ordinarily use unix mailbox format when creating new mailboxes,
and I want them to create mbx format mailboxes. This is achieved by
setting CREATEPROTO=mbxproto during compilation. For example:
make osx CREATEPROTO=mbxproto
achieves this on my OSX machine. However, I'm not sure how to pass
this setting to the FreeBSD port. If I do:
make install CREATEPROTO=mbxproto
it doesn't happen. Is there some way to pass a given argument to the
make process from the make command in the port?
