They have been converted to ports-style WITH/WITHOUT_* flags, and the
preferred location is /etc/src.conf (so as to not add unnecessary
defines to other programs that happen to use make).  See the src.conf
manpage for the full list.  I thought the NO_* flags were still
supported, though (according to the 20060317 /usr/src/UPDATING entry).
