	not sure about setting the options for a particular port, but i
	think you can build it with various flags set when you pull down
	the src.  at any rate, since most drives are HUGE these days,
	enabling all/most options doesn't eat up that great a percent of
	the disk.  and yeah, that's just my guess.

	note that i've been using freebsd since '95 and linux since '05.
