It's definitely possible, but it constructs single line of output which is 
rather hard to parse (though possible, surely).

What about creating special target such as 'create-options-file' or 
'update-options-file' acting depending of existance of /var/db/ports/*/options 
and then acting accordingly?

Well, after a little bit of thought I suppose it should be presented to 
ports-mgr@ to decide...
