/etc/make.conf is case sensitive for booleans?
MAKE_IDEA=yes overrode /etc/defaults/make.conf MAKE_IDEA=YES and
didn't make idea; it was like putting anything but MAKE_IDEA=YES is treated as MAKE_IDEA=NO.
It really shouldn't be case sensitive like that, since most stuff in /etc/rc.conf treats YES=Yes=yes NO=No=no
on any recent release, or current, try making idea with MAKE_IDEA=yes in /etc/make.conf; you get no IDEA.
whatever parses make.conf
