He means how does he pass on ./configure etc options to compile-in optional
features for that prog.  The answer?  less the Makefile and look for the
.if defined(HAVE_SUCHANDSUCH) directives, which you pass on to the make - so
in the case of building gvim for the vim port, you'd issue "make -DHAVE_GTK".
