Dports, Dsynth and Options

Can someone point me in the right direction with regard to setting port 
options for building via Dsynth?

I use subversion to sync files for a specific project, and need the 
SASL=on option set. In poudriere there is a specific command to set port 
options, but reading the DSynth man page I don't see a command for 
setting options.

So, I simply navigated to /usr/dports/devel/subversion and ran 'make 
config' as is often done to set local build options in FreeBSD.

However, 'dialog4ports' does not build, and is not an available pkg on 
Avalon. Setting 'MAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE=yes', as recommended in the DSynth 
dialog4ports build log, also does not help.

Obviously I am missing something. How can I set build options for a port 
on a DSynth package building machine?

Or, doing it locally would also work for now...
