Take a look at the Makefiles for textproc/redland or mail/exim for a simple or 
more complex pair of examples.  For all of them, consider:

   find /usr/ports -name Makefile -print0 | xargs -0 grep -l WITH_BDB_VER

You might find looking at /usr/ports/Mk/ to answer a lot of 
questions one might have, too.
