This is true, but only of ports with broken root- and swap-setting
code.  8-)

Some ports, at least the sparc and the alpha, don't need 'options
GENERIC' with 'swap generic', and on the alpha 'options GENERIC'
has no meaning whatsoever.  (i'm not sure about the sparc port, but
i'd guess that GENERIC has no meaning there, either.)
