There are options i need to feed the mail/sqwebmail build, which aren't 
covered in its PKG_OPTIONS. Rather then edit the Makefile, update via CVS 
every quarter and deal with the mangled Makefile, i've found it easier to 
just remove the whole tree and replace it anew each quarter. Instead of 
re-editing the Makefile for certain packages, i was hoping there's an easier 
way to feed it specific options. 

What would be so horrible about having something like 
CONFIGURE_ARGS.package_name? This would save having a lot of PKG_OPTIONS 
settings for the many configure args that can be used to tweak specific 

Just some thoughts. I'm always open to a better method.
