Folks who create their own binary distributions MUST also create their
own binary patches if they so wish.

There is no link between creation of binary patches and the various
USE_*, MK*, or whatever, build options.  Those options MUST stay static,
unchanged, between the creation of the original binary distribution and
the creation of any subsequent binary patches for that original
distribution.  They do not affect binary patches!

Forget about them!  They do not exist for all intents and purposes of
creating binary patches!
