"make package"

I'm passing these args to "make package"

    PACKAGES=/opt/packages USE_PACKAGE_DEPENDS=yes

According to /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk, the second argument should 
prevent it from compiling dependencies.  But when I run this process, it 
goes into build mode (ie ./configure) and I'd rather it just use the 
binaries I just built.

I can easily get around this by simply doing:

    pkg_create -b portname-1.x /opt/packages/portname-1.x.tgz

but in a makefile with several targets, this becomes cumbersome (ie: 
haveing to name the specific version that happens to be installed).
