Install port without man page

I've experimented with the isc-dhcp3-server port all 3 options -
NO_INSTALL_MANPAGES, NOPORTDOCS and MANPREFIX and in every case there
were manpages installed in /mnt/man/
[root at fbsd70 /mnt/man]# find . -name *dhcp*
[root at fbsd70 /usr/ports/net/isc-dhcp3-server]# make install clean
===> Compressing manual pages for isc-dhcp3-server-3.0.5_2

Thanks for all the advice.
