	I also use both CUPS and OOo; in fact, I just got through
rebuilding OOo-
	If you build from ports, and watch the early stages of the
process, you'll see a number of options mentioned.
	If you use portupgrade, you can set them in
/usr/local/etc/pkgtools.cfg.  Note: this will _only_ work when using
	It is also possible to put these settings in /etc/make.conf.
However, there are reasons to not do so; see discussions on either
questions@ or ports@ within the last month for further discussion.
