Today I found the CPU is drained up by 5 instances of
"script" and "dialog", because everyday when portupgrade updates
python, it tried to display a menu in text mode and ask for a few
options (such as whether python should support IPv6 etc), which of
course hangs in cron job.

Some ports have a config make target which will save options. For
ports that do not, you can use pkgtools.conf and set MAKE_ARGS for
that port.

It may be that a port was modified to support the config target, but
you have not yet run make config for it. It should remember the
options after you make config and select the options you want
included/excluded.
