Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away... (well, OK, seven years ago, in
FreeBSD 1.0) I was working on developing a loadable-module system for
FreeBSD (which I eventually threw out when Terry Lambert donated his
LKM implementation).

In my version, the config file included statements like `module foo',
which config(8) interpreted as `link the files listed in the files
file as ``optional foo'' into a separate module foo.o'.

We can't do this for everything marked `optional' because not all of
those combinations actually make sense.
