Excellent! Thanks. :^) I did look for examples but couldn't find any.

I'll leave that sort of decision to someone @openbsd.org -- I'm just a
sysadmin who OpenBSD-wise occasionally files bug reports & tiny patches.
T'would be presumptuous for me to say, "Oi, you're doing this all wrong,
do it this way because it's more convenient for me. Oh, uhm, I dunno
the ratio of X11 using/non-using OpenBSD installs, but do it my way
The FLAVOR system works, is pretty funky, and no great hassle. I'm
happy to have to specify a flavour -- not like I do this regularly;
otherwise I'd script it, so it still wouldn't be a hassle. When
sending no_x11 patches/requests/(help! wtf is going on here) mails, I've
generally found the maintainers to be responsive and happy to deal with
Right. Time to send the patch to the maintainer. Erm. The guy who's
example I've just shamelessly stolen from and who wrote the FLAVOR
system in the first place. Nervous? Me? Naah.
Everything in life is either a lesson or a joke. Now, determine which is which.
