Unfortunatelly, the Makefile.local included too late for have any
positive/intended effect (e.g. define port-specific WITH/WITHOUT knob,
modify CONFIGURE_ARGS,...) in many cases/ports.  Therefore, advise to
use Makefile.local is unreliable.  And we left in situation, where
make.conf is the only one reasonable working solution :-(

But yes, it should be properly conditionalized by .if/.endif
