some ports have OPTIONS, then you can use make config / make 
config-recursive (man ports)

others don't, then you can set them in /etc/make.conf, for example :

jcigar at frodon ~ % cat /etc/make.conf

.if ${.CURDIR:M*/x11/rxvt-unicode}

.if ${.CURDIR:M*/editors/vim}

(of course you can always use make -DWITH_FOO -DWITHOUT_BAR clean 
install clean)
