Use the 'MAKE_ARGS' array in /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf

Only by experience, or by reading through the port's Makefile.  You
can switch off the interactive configuration by setting 'BATCH=yes' in
make's argument list.  Most of the ports that use interactive
configuration will in any case turn off the interactive stuff if you
give them any WITH_FOO or WITHOUT_BAR options.
