I see my sons use the "X11 build" (but I assume the SDL version is good 

Having multiple pkgsrc directories with different package names (versus 
using options) makes it easy to build multiple packages and to have 
multiple packages to try and easily test.

We should have bulk builds that can automatically test all the available 

We should have a way to provide separate packages (different filenames and 
maybe different package names) for each option.

Does anyone have any ideas on how we can do bulk builds and packaging for 
available options?

What about naming of packages?

OpenBSD appends a name such as "-mysql", "-no_x11" or "-static" for its 
"flavor" style packages.
