Using GitLab With Port Makefile

Hey freebsd-ports peeps,

I'm writing a custom ports entry for my employer. We have an internal
GitLab instance. I was wondering if it'd be possible to use USE_GITHUB
with our internal GitLab, but instead of having the Ports system use
GitHub to download the archive, use our GitLab instance. Is that

I see in ports/Mk/ that MASTER_SITE_GITHUB is appended to.
But it looks like I can't override that.

Let me know how best to proceed. Admittedly, I'm a newb at creating
ports entries.
