Neither side of the static/dynamic root debate wants to give in.  And 
neither side wants to be one the that has to recompile the world to get 
what they want.  So make it so that no one wins.

1. Have sysinstall ask whether you want a dynamic or static root
2. When recompiling the world, make it mandatory that DYNAMICROOT=YES/NO

exits in make.conf.

Neither side wins, neither side loses.  Now both side will hate it

Of course, I'm only being half serious.  But in a bizarre way, it kinda 
makes sense.
