take postfix as an example:
there's an 'options.mk' in pkgsrc/mail/postfix; take a look at it,
there is stated:
# Global and legacy options
PKG_SUPPORTED_OPTIONS= bdb inet6 ldap mysql mysql4 pcre pgsql sasl tls
so edit/create '/etc/mk.conf' and add
'PKG_OPTIONS.postfix=' (plus the option[s] you'd like to have)
then build/install the package...
