Update your ports collection, as your /usr/ports/Mk/* is out of date.

It does pop up the first time you install the port from /usr/ports.
The only time you need to use "make config" is when you want to change
the options that you had selected previously.

The only problem with "make config" is that if the port maintainer
changes the options (adds/removes an option), then it will not pop up
again.  Instead it will use your previous configuration.
