It has some advantages, and testing it while working on a port is cheap. >From https://www.openbsd.org/faq/ports/guide.html: - If the port can build with object files outside its source tree, this is cleaner (many programs using CONFIGURE_STYLE=gnu can), and may help people who mount their ports tree on several arches. - This can also spare you some effort, as you will possibly be able to restart the cycle at configure most of the time.
