They fill different needs. The only case that pkglint might possible
warn against is the use of "" vs @comment.
As a guide line, something the like following could be included in the
(1) Is it about a single file or a small set of files? If yes, use
PLIST_VARS. For a larger number of files, PLIST_SRC can be more useful.
(2) PLIST_SUBST should be kept down to trivial substitions like platform
specific naming components or version specific pathes. They should
generally be accompanied with rules for print-PLIST.
