Yes, "make config" shows saved options.
You can find them in the file /var/db/ports/portname/options as well.

The port in question (apache22) has a number of options and I would like to look at the current ones so that I do not install options that I may not need. I'd appreciate if you can point me to a reference or a command that does it. Will "make config" show it?
