usually reading Makefile in the port directory can reveal the knob. In 
this case just use:

make ZABBIX_AGENT_ONLY=yes install

or, as has been proposed by Norberto Meijome, -DZABBIX_AGENT_ONLY.

Also, if you use portupgrade, please add following to 
/usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf MAKE_ARGS section:

	'net/mgmt/zabbix' => 'ZABBIX_AGENT_ONLY=yes',

as portupgrade will need to know that you've used this knob in first 
install, so it would not install whole zabbix on the upgrade run.
