FreeBSD does a fairly evil thing: it takes the compiler
source code post-config instead of pre-config.

It's really an incredibly bad idea to import *after* a
config instead of before.

The place to handle this is as an option at config time,
so that the code is built or not built, and in the binary
install case, where overlapping installation targets are
permissable (but not tracked; at least Windows has finally
got this right, where a deinstall of something won't
remove a DLL that was also installed by something else).
