I remember using BUILD_DEFS for things and then PKG_OPTIONS came along near 
the time i started spending less time playing with NetBSD. I saw a few once 
BUILD_DEFS options become PKG_OPTIONS, so i was just wondering if it's worth 
my time to suggest a whole lot of new BUILD_DEFS for certain packages that 
would make them more configurable under pkgsrc or there was a preferred new 
method of doing this, using PKG_OPTIONS or otherwise.
