That looks bogus to me. The ?= does not make sense for variables
which are checked for definedness only (?= is the same as = since you
cannot 'unset' the variable on the commandline) and IMO it is sufficient
to fix the port's options parser to check for WITHOUT_OPTION_FOO when
'foo' defaults to 'on'. At least this is how I do it in my ports.
