src.conf(5) says:
     The values of variables are ignored regardless of their setting;
even if
     they would be set to ``FALSE'' or ``NO''.  Just the existence of an
     option will cause it to be honoured by make(1).

     The following list provides a name and short description for variables
     that can be used for source builds.

Does it mean ONLY WITH_* and WITHOUT_* variables are allowed in
