go to the apache2 dir in your portstree ( generally 
/usr/ports/www/apache2/ ) run 'make config' to set options, if the 
specific options aren't there: copy the Makefile to Makefile.orig and 
add the '--enable-OPTION'  and '--disable-OPTION' with the other compile 

Not sure though: but aren't a lot of those options also settable in the 
apache config file ? it might be a better idea to check that out first, 
so if you ever change your mind about a setting you don't have to 
recompile your intire apache2 port.
