what I really need is a RUNTIME option that produces a package with

all in the regular package, It'd make sense to just apply the regular
package to some filter that only allowed those files to be extracted.
For many packages the whole output would be a single file. (This would
be true for any package that produces a single .so such as libjpeg or
libtiff etc. ). The pkg database would however report the package
being installed, thus satisfying other packages that look in the
database for dependencies. Giving it another name (e.g.
foo-runtime-3.2 ) would make the dependencies not match it.

Is as adding a "HEADERS" or whatever you want to call the option to
ports, a solution? Like we have DOC for documentation, an option
that could be PLIST sub'd and switch installation of
include/whatever.h and friends?
Yes it's a ton of work requiring to go through many ports, but
looking at a random sample, it could be scripted and manual labor
To me something like this sounds very much consistent what other
options, like DOC and MANPAGES, already do. And with individual
options you don't presume package roles like -dev or -runtime or
-whatever and you can combine as you want them.
And eventually if, hopefully when, package variants are implemented,
maybe the official pkg repo can include all the variants, but then,
I think, that's only a matter of logistics and resource available to
build all those combinations and store them. But the basic mechanism
for it should be a port option, imho.
