The general rule of thumb is: if it doesn't begin with WITH_ or
WITHOUT_, it's not user-settable. NO_INSTALL_MANPAGES is used for
ports using imake that don't understand the install.man target.

Now of course there are exceptions (usually for no good reason IMHO).
The likes of NOPORTDOCS/NOPORTEXAMPLES/... could be changed to
WITHOUT_DOCS/WITHOUT_EXAMPLES, it's just waiting for somebody to do
the work.
