Yes, you do.
Because make config determines the dependencies.
If speed is what you're worried about, then first do:
in the port you want to investigate, then do portmaster -n - OR,
specify BATCH=yes and PACKAGE_BUILDING=yes to portmaster as make flags. But
note that that will accept a set of default options, as defined by the port
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
