As noted previously, and for additional reasons pointed out by Matt
(regarding the pmax config files), I think this is broken:
* the options may be (mostly) MI, but not supported on all platforms.
You then have to resort to the 'old' way of doing things for those
* just because an option is MI and useful for GENERIC in some (or even
most) ports doesn't meant that it's useful in all.
* it's bloody annoying to have to hunt through N included files to
figure out what's going on.
