        - use of MAKE_FLAGS to set OPT_CPPFLAGS blows away the default
          configuration in the third-party makefile which is constructed by += itself
        - the result is that every actual feature of the window manager is disabled
	( cd /usr/pkgsrc/wm/evilwm && bmake install )
	- use wm and discover that virtual desktops are gone
	- use wm and discover solid drags really drag
	- etc.
	Three options:
	1. revert to version 1.34 and recognize that -D_XOPEN_SOURCE wasn't really a thing
        2. expand MAKE_FLAGS to include the other OPT_CPPFLAGS defaults, i.e.
		-lXrandr -lXext alike
        3. the ten features and set appropriate defaults

        Any which way, an audit of jperkin's work is clearly necessary because
	things touched by him have a tendency to turn to shit.
