I haven't done a line by line count, but even if you're right, that
doesn't help when the code you add is so inefficient. For example, you
still haven't fixed this mess for PKGCONFIG:

.if ${USE_PKGCONFIG:L} == yes

instead of just using:

.if ${USE_PKGCONFIG:L} == yes || ${USE_PKGCONFIG:L} == build

I pointed that out to you shortly after you committed it in July. And
no, don't bother with your typical "send a patch" response. I already
told you I'm not going to waste my time sending patches for trivial
items to fix your code.

I have no intention of inflicting the new OPTIONS on my users until it's
fully backwards compatible (as you promised on day 1) and bug free for a
while. You've only just this week gotten around to fixing command line
compatibility, so let's wait and see how that pans out.
