I suspect this not to work because of the "+=", which works inside
Makefiles, the syntax to set variables on the make(1) command line is
without the '+'. 

On 1.5_BETAsomething/i386, I get:

miyu% make ACCEPTABLE_LICENCES+=fee-based-commercial-use
===> openssl-0.9.5a has unacceptable license: fee-based-commercial-use.
===>     To build this package, add this line to your /etc/mk.conf:
===>     ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES+=fee-based-commercial-use

miyu% make ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES=fee-based-commercial-use
===> Validating dependencies for openssl-0.9.5a
=> Checksum OK for openssl-0.9.5a.tar.gz.
===> Extracting for openssl-0.9.5a
===> Required installed package perl-5.*: perl-5.6.0nb3 found
===> Patching for openssl-0.9.5a

Other than that, I can only REALLY recommend you to do what this said in
the first place, and add the given line to /etc/mk.conf (create it if you
don't have it, and see pkgsrc/mk/mk.conf.examples for a list of other
things you can set there!).

Have fun!
