This will make it impossible for people that use binary packages to
choose which fortune cookie jars they want installed -- in effect,
they'll always get whatever the default setting is from OPTIONS.
Better to have separate ports for the different cookie jars (ie. as we
have now), and an overall meta-port with the OPTIONS settings allowing
people to choose what they want. See lang/php55-extensions for an
example of the sort of thing I mean.
