So it doesn'y describe the options any more, and refer to another command
for that? Sounds suboptimal.
But I agree with you that pointing out where/how to set options would be
useful a low. How about adding something like the bottom of
"supported-options-message" to "show-options":
noon% make show-options
Any of the following general options may be selected:
gqmpeg-japanese Japanese ID3 tag support.
gqmpeg-russian Russian ID3 tag support.
These options are enabled by default: gqmpeg-japanese gqmpeg-russian
These options are currently enabled: gqmpeg-japanese gqmpeg-russian
add => You can select which build options to use by setting PKG_DEFAULT_OPTIONS
add => or the PKG_OPTIONS.gqmpeg variable.
That would suffice my needs.
