recursive 'make config'?

I love the 'make config' option. Is there a way to recursively 'make
config' before installing a port with a lot of dependencies (similar to
the way sysutils/portupgrade can recursively fetch with -RF)? If I want
to install kde, for example, I'd prefer to configure options for each
dependent port before installing. In other words, I don't want to set
"BATCH=yes". However, without "BATCH=yes" I have to check the progress
occasionally to configure some port because the build process stopped.
I know this is only a big deal on the first install (because the options
are saved), but it's rather annoying to start a kde compile before you
go to bed and wake up with only a few ports installed...
