Where do I find documentation so I get the correct syntax for setting ports options in /etc/make.conf ?

I tried "man ports", "man make", "man make.conf", and the online Porters' Handbook but have been unable to find the needle in the haystack.

NetBSD pkgsrc and Gentoo (Linux) portage document this much better.
