Well, I don't have a solution for you -- maybe you have some strange
shell/terminal settings causing the breakage -- but here are some

1) Use 'make -DBATCH' to skip the options dialog and use the defaults.
   You could define WITH_XXX or WITHOUT_XXX to manually change them.
   This will cause interactive ports to be skipped too.

2) If you are using X: install x11/xdialog, and use 'make
   DIALOG=/usr/X11R6/bin/Xdialog' (or define DIALOG in /etc/make.conf)
   This will give you a GTK-based dialog instead of a console ncurses
