If a package needs not only a binary switch (i.e. is option X switched
on or not) but some value (e.g. a name) should one create a new variable
to be used in mk.conf?

e.g. something like this:

FOOPKG_STRING?= "defaultvalue"
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --with-string="${FOOPKG_STRING}"

or is there some better way of accomplishing this?
