thanks for the info. actually i had something like this in my
make.conf beforehand as stated in

i thought i could get rid of it. imo the current behaviour where
make.conf takes priority over src.conf during buildworld is not what
users expect. src.conf should ALWAYS take priority over make.conf when
buildworld or buildkernel is being run.

just my 0,02$. ;)
