I'm not sure it's a good idea to run make like that just to list ports options.
Comment 2 Niclas Zeising freebsd_committer 2020-09-17 09:36:53 UTC
I don't like this, as I've stated earlier.  Running make in a loop just to get descriptions for the list feels both error prone and can be resource intensive.
Closing this.
