It actually doesn't matter what options you set. The emacs-nox11 slave
port sets WITHOUT_X11 and _OPTIONS_OK; the former causes the menu
settings to be ignored and the latter prevents the option menu from
coming-up during a build.

IMO, rather than setting _OPTIONS_OK in the slave port, it would be
better to make the the assignment of the OPTIONS variable conditional in
the master port.
