Actually, this is mixed up with the new OPTIONS framework.  One of the
changes involved is that the old NOPORTDOCS and NOPORTEXAMPLES variables
are now treated as global options DOCS and EXAMPLES respectively.  Which
makes a lot of sense and is generally a good idea, but causes some
confusion when a port has a pre-existing DOCS or EXAMPLES option -- the
global DOCS and EXAMPLES are on by default, and this can lead to some
ports having significantly enlarged dependency lists.

On the other hand, the capability to have one global switch to turn on
or off certain options is really interesting.  At the moment it is only
DOCS, EXAMPLES and NLS but surely there are more to come.  X11 perhaps.
