I'd rather you didn't. There's really only one situation in which anyone
should change it, and then only temporarily. Changing it will almost
always lead to build failures when you already have ports installed or
if you're using prebuilt archives.

The portfile option destroot.delete_la_files, OTOH, should be
documented, as that's where the behaviour should be set.
