I don't follow what you mean.

What I'm trying to say is that we as a group have a notion of "if you're
going to do a bulk build to make packages for people, here's how you
should configure it".   Today, that notion includes "you should set
PKG_DEVELOPER=yes".  All I am suggesting is that we should store the
agreed-upon notion of how standard bulk builds should be done in the
dafaults for all pkgsrc building.

Certainly if somebody wants to do a bulk build with different options,
for whatever  reasons they want, I don't object.   I was merely trying
to say that having one set of defaults in the code and another in group
wisdom that says "configure it this way" is unhelpful.

I think what you're objecting to is new checks getting put in the
defaults, before we know that they cause almost no failures.  I don't
think you object to the checks we've had in PKG_DEVELOPER for a long
time, since we pretty much know almost everything is ok with them.
