options used to compile packages

well I don't actually now which package it was, but I compiled gdm (so
it should be one of it's dependencies). A compilation resulted in a non
working gdm (something with pam support not found on execution). Upon
installing gdm and is dependencies from packages, everything worked
correctly. Therefore I thought there might be other default options. I
am sorry that I cannot be more precise, but I tried it 2 months ago, so
I do not remember exactly. I think I will try it again from scratch with
latest ports tree and give you more precise information.
