The options are stored in /var/db/port_name_here/options.
If you do a "make rmconfig" or "rmconfig-recursive" before a "make
install", then it is deleting the options file, and with a "make
install" you can happily choose your favorite options again. 
As usual, the manual for ports
# man ports
will list most of the things you can do with ports.
You can take a look at /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk for more information.
