I don't see it documented in Packages.txt (but I do see in mk/bsd.pkg.mk).
If I understand this correctly, then this is just to save a little time.
So should all packages that don't have a ./configure use "NO_CONFIGURE"?
And all packages that don't have patches should use "NO_PATCH"?
If so, I should send-pr this for net/gethost (no ./configure) and
net/md-whois (no ./configure and no patches).
What other steps can be skipped? (And where is this documented?)
