curl: pass --with-random=/dev/urandom to configure - manually

I failed to build curl, cc'ed that ticket:

As a workaround it is suggested to pass  --with-random=/dev/urandom  
manually to configure. As on my machine /dev/urandom exists, I dont  
have to carry out that test. I did fetch, checksum, extract patch  
manually and than tried

>> dsl01:~ bub$ sudo port configure.args --with-random=/dev/urandom curl
>> Unrecognized action "configure.args"
>> dsl01:~ bub$ sudo port configure --with-random=/dev/urandom curl
>> Error: configure does not accept --with-random=/dev/urandom

… obviously that doesnt work.

What is the proper way to pass that argument?

Thanks and greetings,
