Yes looks fine:

root at yokozuna:/poudriere/ports/local/mail/alpine # make -V CONFIGURE_ARGS
--with-debug-level=2  --enable-background-post  --without-krb5 
--without-tcl  --with-system-pinerc=/usr/local/etc/alpine.conf 
--with-system-mail-directory=/var/mail --with-interactive-spellcheck 
--with-interactive-spellcheck=/usr/local/bin/aspell --with-ipv6 
--with-ldap --with-ldap-dir=/usr/local --enable-mouse --enable-nls 
--with-simple-spellcheck --with-passfile --with-passfile=.alpine-passfile 
--with-pthread --prefix=/usr/local ${_LATE_CONFIGURE_ARGS}
