No, the Makefile.ext vs.the way I organized it wasn't what I was referring 
to.  That's just an alternative I thought might be easier to follow.  And 
I'd rather offer code than lots and lots of decriptions of what I'm talking 
about.  :)

Sorry I wasn't so clear.  The issue I've been raising over and over is to 
*not* have a @pkgdep recoreded for any of the plugins.  I was showing how 
to do that by using BUILD_DEPENDS instead of RUN_DEPENDS to force install 
of the plugins.

This allows the flexibility to install and uninstall plugins without having 
to fix up any DEPENDS.  No package should record a DEPENDS on any of the 
plugin ports otherwise this flexibility disappears.

However OPTIONS selected will be recorded so that future reinstalls of this 
meta port or any ports which depend on it will ensure that your chosen 
plugins are installed.
