I try to avoid setting things in make.conf that do not need to be set there. Why? Because - as far as I know - they will apply to _everything_ that uses the standard "make" infrastructure. That includes today's port, where WITH_MUMBLEFROTZ is essential. It also includes the equally critical port you're trying to install in nine months, long after you forgot you put WITH_MUMBLEFROTZ in make.conf, and whose resultant misbehavior will be difficult to diagnose. (Misspell something, and you might even affect compiling the OS. No thanks.) I use portupgrade and pkgtools.conf. Perhaps not the fastest, but generally reliable and has few unintended consequences.
