it would still be nice if there was a sys/conf/STANDARD or something
that listed all the `standard' NetBSD options that *should* be supported
by all ports in GENERIC, if only so that there is a single place that
this can exist.  not that we should "include" this file, but just that
it exists as a reference.  anyone who has ever done a slight comparision
of different ports listed options will know that there is a large
disparity currently wrt standard options even just *appearing* (if
commented) in configuration files.  i'd hope that the STANDARD file
would allow (a) old ports to update without too much effort, and (b)
new ports to know exactly what they need to.

not that i want to create the first version of STANDARD.
