IMHO, sticking to an old-world order, you're locking yourself of out
many advantages that OPTIONS bring to you. There're about a dozen of
options, and more will appear (I'm about to pull some nifty Gentoo
patches to fvwm2-devel in some near future). Without OPTIONS, our users
would have to read the Makefile (well, that could be avoided by priting
them in pre-everything:: target), but they would still need to manually
define all those knobs on command line (or in pkgtools.conf).

This is plain silly, shall you excuse me. Before we can discuss it, I
want to hear about some real overhead/troubles you have with it enabled
