Automating Port Building- Setting options on the command line

First, before you tell me to do it, I have already RTFM, done a google
and even looked for examples. Here is what I am trying to do.
I have to generate a set of packages for amd64 and i386 systems.
I usually have a simple script that does:
cp <generated package> /.../repository
This served my simple needs well, as most of the time I had gone through
the configuration process and set up the default options that I wanted.
But this requires me to
a) run through this process once by hand
b) copy the /var/db/ports/* to a machine with another
c) pray that the port options are the same on the i386 and amd64
What I would like to do is pass in a set of default options on the
make configure THIS=yes THAT=no
I just know that somebody out there is doing this better, slicker,
and with more savvy than I am doing this.
OK. How do I do this? And just in case there are some others out there,
could you put this information, or a hint to it, in the ports(7) document?
