Is there a ports environment variable that I could set in /etc/make.conf which would force these to be somewhere in /usr/ports/vindaloo-port-options so that setting options on one machine would carry through to others sharing my build environment?

A little creative greping found it. Sorry to bother the list should have grepped first.

# PORT_DBDIR    - Where port configuration options are recorded.
#                                 Default: /var/db/ports
