Well, I really don't care about setting a global option in my mk.conf to avoid
gnome. Gnome is now default in pkgsrc (all people loves gnome), but I would like 
an easy way to avoid it.

Every time I do an upgrade on my sources, I've to replace the configuration on 
the gnome-enabled packages (gimp, gimageview, etc.) then restore.

I think it is good to make life easier to newcomers, but a choice is fine too for
the people that doesn't want the add-on.
