Is there any way to do this options preconfiguring not using poudriere?

One good thing about NetBSD pkgsrc, also Gentoo portage, is being able to set options by package or for all packages in /etc/make.conf or mk.conf .

Is there a good way to do this in FreeBSD prior to running synth?

I found it very disconcerting to do a massive portupgrade (using portupgrade), going to bed or otherwise away from the computer, and then finding it stopped at a dialog screen.

I ran make config-recursive many times, several times on the same port to get what was missed on the first or previous make config-recursive.

I am not familiar with the details on planned upgrades to the ports framework and how they will affect usability of portmaster, but remember some users swore by portmanager during the pkg_* days, prior to pkgng.

Portmanager could not be made compatible with pkgng and was subsequently dropped from ports/ports-mgmt.
