You're definitely not up-to-date on what ports can do. :)
See the existing flavors for postgresql.
In general, if you don't find all the options you may want in the port,
you can probably get very good results by asking here for those options.
If you really, really want to recompile from source, go ahead. But you
are reinventing the wheel, as people spent already quite a few hours
figuring most of that stuff out.

Nope, it's somewhat of a confusion. IS_INTERACTIVE may be set if the port
will ask questions during configuration. As a rule, we don't like those
ports, as they can't be packaged reliably for obvious reasons.
We much prefer FLAVORS for boolean settings. Other kinds of settings are
another issue. The preferred way involves postponing hard questions until
the actual pkg_add stage.
