Re: Package split or package options?

   So, should I use package options controlling which of the three (or four) 
   components gets built (less overhead, less likely to accidently install 
   a client, but no server) or split it into three packages plus a 
   nss-pam-ldapd/Makefile.common (better for binary packages)?

Please split it into separate packages.  That way, after I have done
my bulk build and partially deployed some packages, I don't need to
restart from the beginning when I realize I wanted to add a different
feature -- I just have to run pkg_add.
