Sorry for sending outside of the thread, but I missed the initial email
as my MUA has been acting up.

Yes, this is very possible. There are a few features in Tinderbox that
allows one to build customized packages. See the README for details on
the .env files and OPTIONS support. The upcoming Tinderbox 2.4.0 will
have improved OPTIONS support, and a new feature called Hooks that will
make using things like customized make.conf files easier.

You can build as many custom ports trees as you'd like. For my
Tinderbox, I have one ports tree called "MarcusCom" that tracks GNOME
development, and one tree called "FreeBSD" which is simply the unaltered
FreeBSD ports tree.
