Yes, but it's up the person that maintains the port to add the necessary
configuration information to the Makefile.

In this case, the port maintainer (lev@freebsd.org) needs to add an
appropriately defined OPTIONS variable (as described at
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook/makefile-options.html)
to enable this.

Your best bet is to contact lev, and either ask them to do this, or send
them a patch that does it.

Hope that helps,
