I would tend to agree with this:  if PKG_OPTIONS.<name> is nonempty,
build from source; otherwise use a binpkg.  Note that <name> is
defined by the package Makefile and doesn't come from PKGNAME, so it
may be best to have contain the logic to force source
building when the variable is nonempty.

Now, it's arguable as to whether this change in behavior should be
switchable on/off.  :)
