Thank you Matthew Pherigo for your reply.

Besides the [make config] method there is a way to over ride what the 
config file contains by coding "with=" and/or "without=" on the [make 
install] command line, that way no human intervention is necessary.

My question deals with [what are the operands the go with the "with=" 
and/or "without=" make command syntax for the options shown by the
[make config] command for phpmyadmin.

About portmaster, My over goal is to keep the port compile time to a 
minimum. To that end I do [pkg install xxx] for all the dependents of 
the desired port. Then I code the desired config options on the [make 
install] command so no human intervention is required and only the 
desired port is compiled. Now are you saying I can have portmaster 
compile the desired port and automatically use packages for all the 
ports dependents?
