You should *never* need to edit a Makefile in a port. (Well, extremely
rarely.) Usually the options are provided. Optionally you can add them
on the commandline like this:
make -dwith_enable-foo -dwith_disable-bar. In the case of major ports
such as lang/php5, the options are almost always available somehow. Jpeg
support, for example, is in php5-extensions.
If you don't find something you're expecting in a port, and you can't get
an answer on this list, email the port maintainer, whose email address
will always be in the port's Makefile.
