configuring all dependancies before making in ports

Quick question, I'm trying to build a couple of packages that take a
long time to build, even longer because they just stop when it's time
to configure something. That's a problem if it's configure time, say
when I need to sleep, or am at work.

Is there a way to have the make run through all the dependancies that
need build, running their configuration menus /before/ doing any of
the builds?

$ cd /usr/ports/x11/kde3
$ make -dependancies=configure install clean
