My bad that I didn't put it into the commit log. I even
remember thinking about splitting the style/change thing
between two commits, but then given up on the idea and
just went ahead and committed it in a single revision.
My excuse for that being: this commit covered a zillion
of other files (see commitlogs/share.20041201.gz).

Sorry about that, but some facts just don't hold forever. ;)

Also because that "NO" area is for documenting knobs that affect
*not* building some parts of the world. In case of ppp(8), the
knobs only tell how to *not* build parts of ppp(8). If there
were NO_PPP, it would belong to this section indeed.

OK, how about just committing my patch, now that you have all
explanations in hands. Feel free to attribute your confusion
