For example, something installed gcc-{9,10} as dependency, which brought in
for various platforms. If installed from devel/binutils port, it would have
only "native" flavor instead of multitude of other extraneous versions.

So I would have listed "flavor" in some file (ideally suitable for both pkg
& make) so
that when "binutils" would be installed again, only one version^Wflavor of
it would
have been installed.
