I've never set ports options at all.  I just do generic installs,
whenever I'm forced to use ports rather than packages.  

MariaDB 10.1 was and should still be a standalone installand with
no dependencies at all.  So to see config-recursive pop up config
screens for sqlite, tcl, and other stuff that has no logical
connection to MariaDB at all is disconcerting to say the least.
