In the relevant port dir

make config

Or invest some time in reading up on portupgrade and put the option into 
pkgtools.conf (once portupgrade is installed, of course :-)) then

portupgrade -f mbmon

would do what you want and would also remember the next time!

Can you not just force mbmon to not use SMB?  Does a simple "mbmon -d" 
not find anything?  If it does e.g.

# mbmon -d
SMBus[VT8233/A/8235/8237(KT266/333/400/600/880)] found, but No HWM 
available on it!!
Using ISA-IO access method!!
* Winbond Chip W83627HF/THF/THF-A found.

Then try "mbmon -p winbond" and make that an alias for mbmon in your shells.
