Hi there,

various ports display messages informing the user that they can use
WITH_THIS or WITHOUT_THAT. these messages are put into pre-everything,
pre-fetch, post-fetch... How about a new target, say, "options"?


    @${ECHO_CMD} "You can use the following variables to build this port:"
    @${ECHO_CMD} "WITH_FOO:    includes support for FOO"
    @${ECHO_CMD} "WITHOUT_BAR: disables support for BAR"


.if !target(options)
    @${ECHO_CMD} "No user-servicable parts inside."
    @${ECHO_CMD} "Warranty void if removed."

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see
