I have build and used it that way, but right now it seems like the option
is a no-op and the configure magic always happens, independed of the pkgsrc
option. I don't understand the build system and its configure magic.

E.g. the bin/smbcacls program is unconditional in PLIST, and probably the
option can just be removed - which makes total sense to me ;-)
