     It's not telling you to ask for comments, it's telling you to
update pkgsrc/mk/defaults/options.description.  That's where the
explanation is found when you type "make show-options" as in this:

P4-3679GHz: {457} make show-options
Any of the following general options may be selected:
        ldap     Enable LDAP support.
        snmp     Enable SNMP support.
        ssl      Enable SSL support.

D'Arcy chose to ask for comments, he was not obligated to do so.
