Can you maybe explain what you mean with a dynamic plist and with
a static plist?

For example, a pkg-plist file with %%WITH_IPV6%% in the front, which
get commented out if the use has WITHOUT_IPV6 set, is that a static
or a dynamic one?

For example, PLIST_FILES= foor/bar, which doesn't change ever, is
that a static or a dynamic one?

Please make clear what you are talking about before giving your
pros and cons.
