	I'm confused: how is this different in principle from the
"MAKE_ARGS" section of (/usr/local/etc/)pkgtools.conf?  E.g.:

    'www/mozilla-devel' => 'BUILD_OFFICIAL=1',
    'graphics/gimp' => [
    'www/apache22' => [
    'editors/xemacs-devel-mule' => [
    'editors/emacs' => [
   'multiledia/mplayer' => [
