Thanks a lot, I'll definitely give this a try when I touch a port with
several options next time. I've been looking for something like this,
actually just to have complete 'poudriere testport' coverage for all
options – didn't even think about the possibility to use it for
pkg-plist generation, but that's a nice idea!

I assume it will already sort out "impossible" combinations of options?
