No, not exactly. But this line worked for me today:

        ./ -O /path/to/objdir -u -U -j 16 -m i386 release

You might want to prefix this with "MAKECONF=/foo" to make your sure that your 
"/etc/mk.conf" is *not* used. You should also make sure that you don't set 
things like "CFLAGS", "LDFLAGS" etc. in your shell environment.

        Kind regards
