Thanks for the reply Matt.

The trouble with that is that you have to build it first. It would be nice to be able to find out the options BEFORE you go through the whole process of building it, only to have to build it again to use the options you want.

Plus you can always read the port Makefile.  It's not that hard to
work out what the options are.
Not exactly the ideal solution, is it?

It would be nice to have something like "make help" that would print out all the options for that port. (I'm just trying to think of ways to make FreeBSD easier to use.)
