Pav is right, it's one of reason I refused to convert any of my ports to
use OPTIONS. Also, the OPTIONS has some limited. I don't like to be
downgrade and limited by default. Once, all of known bugs are fixed and
get a lot better then I shall accept the convert. The truth is that I
always and still think that OPTIONS doesn't solve anything.
As for improvement suggest, I always want our ports tree to merge two
prefixes (LOCALBASE/X11BASE) into a prefix. It's a big task.
A bit OT: I have wrote cports.sh that will running portlint on all
ports that maintain by same person. I am hoping to clean up all of gnome@
ports when I am finishing w/ my final lab/exam on this week
