I see. As far as I can tell though, and correct me if I'm wrong, but
'make install' doesn't show those options. It also does not show those
options for dependent ports. Neither does 'make config-recursive'.

Tools like portmaster will now ignore those as well during install and

So, again, what are my options if I don't want dependencies to be pulled
in silently?
