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.
