--- Comment #8 from Bernard Spil <brnrd at freebsd.org> ---
Looking at it, this has always been a problematic thing... The variables in
/etc/make.conf affect both base and ports. If modules happen to have
overlapping names this will lead to unexpected behavior.

As man src.conf says "source build options" that is where I would expect that
we document WITH_/WITHOUT_MODULES. Should we assign this to docs@?

Additionally, I think we should mark both WITH_ and WITHOUT_MODULES as
UNSUPPORTED in Mk/bsd.sanity.mk. Now there's checks that emit the warning as
seen in the opening Description for lang/tcl86. For the www/apache24 ports we
set then to IGNORE in the ports framework.
