It is not only about options but about dependencies and multiple versions
Many SW have multiple versions supported at the same time and packages built
for them too. With your point of view there will be packages for default
versions only, but there are packages for multiple versions of Python (and
flavours for py- packages), multiple versions of PHP, MySQL, MariaDB,
Postgres... and they all have their packages. PECL Imagick is PHP binding for
ImageMagick and there are two of them. Both have packages. Some ports need
modern ImageMagick 7, some legacy 6. That's why graphics/pecl-imagick-im7
exists as a separate port and package.
