i understand, but this is still what i meant, too.
i only argue, that one single package may be bad, due to bandwidth reasons
and such.

the package manager should still accept 'pkg_install -o bin,doc port', which
would be equivalent to 'pkg_install port-bin port-doc', if -doc and -bin

> make BIN=yes DOC=yes DEVEL=no all install clean (in ports speak)

when compiling from source, three different packages clearly make no
sense ;)
maybe you didnt thought so either.

i hope i did not cause too much confusion, as i am no native speaker (as you
might have noticed ;)
