	I don't think so.  There are 127ports supported DEBUG related
	knobs.  Only 127ports, and there are some ports which we
	request with DEBUG related knobs at the most.

	'WITH_DEBUG' is well known and global knob.  This is POLA
	important.  If you want to turn on/off per port, you can
	set following description in /etc/make.conf.  This is ungy,
	sure.  But it's casual.

.if ${.CURDIR} == "/usr/ports/foo/bar"
.if ${.CURDIR} == "/usr/ports/bar/foo"
