 Ports caching settings...
Author: el_kab0ng

When initially installing Qpopper, I noticed the developers included a GUI to select options (such as DRAC support) during a make. I have since wanted to deinstall and reinstall the port without DRAC (deinstall, make clean), but it appears the settings are cached, so I am no longer given the menu options I initially had.

I've tweaked the Makefile directly, but still no luck. Does the ports collection cache the initial settings during a make somewhere that I can clear out?

wow.. do I have a history of figuring stuff out 5 minutes after I ask or what???

FYI: options for installed ports are typically found in /var/db/ports

Delete the port options to start fresh with a reinstall.
