I'd be a bit more conservative. CHECK_INTERPRETER can always be enabled.
CHECK_PERMS pulls in an extra dependency and I wouldn't put that much
value in it. Not sure about CHECK_FAKEHOME. CHECK_SHLIBS also seems
useful enough to have by default. All that said, I really hope that
PKG_DEVELOPER is enabled by everyone before commit, no excuses. It
should also be used for all bulk builds.
