When you get a menu prompt to select options, all that it does is set 
make variables. You can see them in the /var/db/<port>/options file, or 
you can see what they are in the Makefile. Either way, you can specify 
them on the command line as <var>=<value (usually YES/NO)> or in 
pkgtools.conf the same way. You're probably better off editing the 
options file or removing it and running "make config" on the port.
