Running make config in the port dir before making Tinybsd should prevent 
it.  The config is saved under /var/db/ports.  If Tinybsd is doing 
standard port system commands (cd net/dhcp3-server; make install), it 
should pick up the existing config and go with it.

Or, running tinybsd with the enironment BATCH=yes will skip the port 
config, and build what is default if no config file exists.  This one 
you probably don't want, but if the above doesn't work, this is 
something else to try.  This may affect tinybsd in a way that is 
unpredictable though.

Good luck,
