Default Avoiding password while compiling ports

Is there a secure and simple way to prevent the compilation process from asking for my password more than once? The documentation suggests avoiding root for compilation, which makes sense, so I set up to compile as my regular user. However, the "persist" option in doas.conf seems more like a "pester" option because it asks for my password incessantly. I usually end up resorting to the "nopass" option but that just seems terribly insecure. What is the best way to work around this problem?
