look in the Makefile. it's just text.

--with-foo / --without-foo is the syntax the underlying ./configure
expects, -DFOO / FOO=1 is the syntax make expects.
If you want to get most [understanding] from the ports collection,
learn basics of make(1). Simple stuff is easy, it's fun going
through the guts of /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.*.mk, and knowing some make-fu
is a generally useful virtue.
If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message. see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
