Hi Joerg,

Understood.  Still I would suggest adding this feature as it's easier
to use compared to your suggested alternatives, which requires:

* Knowing how to use DEPENDS_TARGET and BINPKG_SITES which are
introduced at different places in the pkgsrc guide.

* Making sure to use the same PKG_OPTIONS for the packages of interest
in both pbulk and pkgsrc, which if not kept the same may not trigger
the same issue.

* Having to build it again, which means more time spent.  For me it's
1-2 hours for building gnupg2 itself.

If it can be done in pbulk itself by changing a single flag it can
make life easier for pkgsrc newbies like myself.
