Port options and portmanager - FreeBSD

Hi, If I want to retain a port option (that perhaps I passed at the command line using -D) between uprades of a port, will portmanager handle this automatically or do the options need to be placed in make.conf? Thanks Chris...

    Default Port options and portmanager

    Hi,

    If I want to retain a port option (that perhaps I passed at the command
    line using -D) between uprades of a port, will portmanager handle this
    automatically or do the options need to be placed in make.conf?

    Thanks

    You can put the option in /etc/make.conf if you want but then it will
    be picked up by all the ports.

    If you read the manpage for portmanager I think it should tell you
    about the configuration file where you can store all the options.

    I can't remember the name of it off the top of my head at the moment I'm afraid.

    Ah don't worry I have my answer. I need to use make.conf. Found it at
    the bottom of the portmanager man page. Great detail in the man page
