Building gimp without gvfs

Each time gimp-app gets upgraded I lose the ability to open URI's
with "Open location" or by dragging images from firefox.
Apparently this is because I need to explicitly pass --without-gvfs to
configure  . I was rather surprised that I needed to do this
since I have the gvfs port installed but it did the trick for me. What
I do is to edit the Makefile and add --without-gvfs to the
CONFIGURE_ARGS lines. The snag is that I invariably forget about this
by the next time the port gets upgraded and I have to sort the problem
out again. What could I add to /etc/make.conf to have this option added
to CONFIGURE_ARGS automatically?
