Would it be "./configure --help" ?
You can run it to see what configuration is possible with the src you
are building, but that's what port does, it's a frontend to it (correct
me with wrong).
If you want to build manually the src you need to run "./configure
--args" like "./configure --with-mysql --with-zlib" for php in example,
and after the configure script run OK you do "make install" to make and
install the program.
