Indeed. I was aware of, and make much use of it. But am struggling
with finding the port(s) equivalent. If there isn't one, I'd be
more that happy to dedicate a domain/ web site solely to providing
this resource. Perhaps a wiki that I, and anyone else can add the
WITH_/WITHOUT_ options, along with descriptions of exactly /what/
they provide. Seems like a /real/ valuable, and /needed/ resource.
Thanks again for your response.
