Check deeper in the port's directory. You should be able
to find it in a subdirectory after "make extract", i. e.,
when all the sources are in place. THe manual method is:

	# make fetch
	# make extract
	# make patch

Then you can locate the "configure" script and call it with
the options. Afterwards, regular "make" (from the top of
this port's directory tree) should work.

The Makefiles will often be generated or altered "dynamically"
(by the "configure" step). But of course you can check if the
Makefile (which calls "configure" as one of the first steps)
can be temporarily changed to reflect the option in question,
as selecting the required option in "make configure" should
typically cause all dependencies to be considered accordingly.

Again, this is all "stuff you shouldn't do". ;-)
