I have done a fast fix already, your patch is wrong is the way that OPTIONS_SET
is a end user thing to put in make.conf where OPTIONS_DEFAULT is the one to be
used inside a port

Do you want the PR to remain open because you will add some modification on top
of my "fast fix" or not?

Concerning the openldap problem, I have spotted why it does that, which is the
long known problem of UNIQUENAME changing all the time, it might take more time
to fix in the particular case because it is not easy to. it worked before
because the option framework was buggily read 3 times.
