Thank a lot for working on pkg!

What I really miss a lot is support for package "profiles": an ability to build the same port with different OPTIONs combination.
For example:
minimal nginx version;
nginx version with passenger module (for puppet server)
nginx version with some other rare options turned on for custom application.

Right now I achieve this with manually renaming /var/db/ports/*/options files and some manipulations in /usr/ports/packages/All.
But a framework to automatically handle this would be very useful.
