changing paths to get libgda to compile (1.2.4, Revision 1)

I've been trying to install the port libgda, but got errors:


Making all in po
file=`echo az | sed 's,.*/,,'`.gmo \
   && rm -f $file &&  -o $file az.po
/bin/sh: line 1: -o: command not found
make[1]: *** [] Error 127
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

the lone "-o" appeared because neither MSFGMT or GMSGFMT was set in  
the Makefile in the ./po directory

after some searching I found a hint in the FreBSD "Porters Handbook": 

so with

ibgda/work/libgda-1.2.4# CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/ 
opt/local/lib" ./configure --without-bdb

it compiled cleanly.

--without-bdb is set because of another error from that area I  
ignored - (I don't need BDB support, anyway)

with the build dir prepared like that, the "port install libgda"  
completed successfully

how would I tell the port to add such a configure option?
