I think you guys aren't lazy enough.

- Put http://people.freebsd.org/~flz/local/mkconf somewhere in ${PATH}.
- Add the following to /etc/make.conf:

=== snip ===
.if ${.CURDIR:N/usr/ports/*}==""
.for i in ${_MKCONF}
=== snip ===

- Create a /etc/ports.conf file with lines like:
www/apache20: WITH_FOO=yes WITH_BAR=no

Note: I think it should work with wildcards.
