It's not portupgrade that needs that, but make(1).  You can set make 
variables from the command line, and this is what portupgrade does to
exercise various options while building ports.

The syntax for make is either:

    make VARIABLE=value

or 

    make -DVARIABLE

where the latter is equivalent to saying

    make VARIABLE=1

('D' for 'define')

Translating that into the format used by pkgtools.conf you can write
either:

    MAKE_ARGS = {
      	<snipped>
        'www/rt36' => '-DWITH_APACHE2'
    }

or 

    MAKE_ARGS = {
      	<snipped>
        'www/rt36' => 'WITH_APACHE2=1'
    }

You can also undefine a variable by:

   make -UVARIABLE
