Lightbulb How to get 'make' to accept all defaults for dependent packages


I'd like to find out if there is a way to have the 'make' command use some sort of flag to tell it to accept all the default options for dependent packages so that the build doesn't stop running when I build a port.

For example, as you know, building kde4 takes forever and a day, and I don't want to have to keep clicking OK on every dependent package options window when building large ports like this, I want to just accept the default settings and let it build right from the start.

Is there a flag for make to have it accept the default options for all dependent packages?

Please advise.

I looked for such a flag in the man page but didn't see one that fit the bill.

Thank you in advance for your help,
