    Should pkglint be giving hints on this?

If it's just based on something like extra files included from an being chosen I tend to use PLIST_VARS.  But I do believe
PLIST_SUBST has it's place if you need to customise the replaced text.
I think PLIST_SRC+= has seen its day.

        So potentially pkglint could warn if it sees a PLIST_SUBST
        at the start of a line in PLIST (or set to @comment), or
        any usage of PLIST_SRC+= ?
