I'm not sure it's exactly what you're looking for, but portmaster will
present all the OPTIONS dialogs first before it starts building the
first port, which allows you to set all the options then walk away
while stuff builds. Once the options files are already there you can
do the whole process again with the --force-config option, or let them
stay as is until something changes (which is the default).

hope this helps,
