It has some advantages, and testing it while working on a port is cheap.
- 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.
