I've been looking for info that certain ports use to store options ... I 
have looked in the porters handbook andthe general handbook, no joy, and 
yet I know that there are some ports that do no store their options in 
cookie files, or in the environment.  There's some sort of data base, 
something in /var/run, or something like that.

Can I get pointed at that code?  It doesn't seem to be documented 
anywhere I can find.  The reason I care is, it doesn't seem to be 
cleaned out by 'make clean', and while I think that's VERY wrong, I need 
to know how to reset this options.

If necessary, I can go looing for an example, but I don't ahve one at 
hand right now.
