#53089: option-contains

 This is a little prototype patch that adds a "contains" function to the
 options mechanism, something I've often missed when trying to do things
 like adding depspecs cleanly.


 if {![depends_build-contains port:pkgconfig]} {
     # pkgconfig already added by one of the included PortGroups
     depends_build-append port:pkgconfig


 variant qtA description {support Qt component "A"} {
     # someday: qt5.depends_component qt-a
     depends_lib-append port:qt5-qt-a
 variant qtB description {support Qt component "B"} {
     # someday: qt5.depends_component qt-b
     depends_lib-append port:qt5-qt-b

 # pull in some runtime dependency made necessary by either of the qt
 # checking for the dependency pattern rather than using multiple
 variant_isset calls
 if {[depends_lib-contains -regexp port:qt5-qt-*]} {
     depends_run-append port:shared_runtime_dependency

 Ideally the handle_option-contains procedure would scan over $args and
 catch all lsearch arguments, but that may be overkill.
