I found it in the make.conf(5) man page. I will say, however, that the
description is fairly skimpy and I wouldn't have really known how to use it to
solve my nvidia driver problem w/o the help of folks here.

A more complete description, preferably with a few examples, would really help
to understand how it is actually used.
