 It's trying to use "license" as an example, but it's horribly unclear.

 The real reason is that the boolean logic on licenses feature was only
 added recently.
 The good reasonn is that as Joerg pointed out to name exact sets of
 licenses to enable you need a boolean satisfiability solver, which
 though possible in principle is not really a winning idea for
 implementing in make for pkgsrc.
 Something like what I suggested should be feasible; it will need to
 wait until 2010Q1 is branched though.
