For cases where one line comments won't suffice how about providing the
to include an extra text file in a port (perhaps "pkg-options") containing
notes about why some particular options would be chosen?
In its simplest form a user would be able to refer to the file before selecting
an option, A further enhancement could be to modify the way that configure
works so that the user can select an option and press "?" to see the section
of text, if any, from pkg-options explaining that option.
