It's not completely clear to me if you are referring to my portconf
port. If so, the interaction is really simple: portconf is complementary
to port OPTIONS, that is, it's to be used for ports that don't have
OPTIONS or, better, for knobs that are not handled by OPTIONS.
If you use it to set knobs handled by OPTIONS, you are using portconf in
the wrong way.
