Yeah, I'm a bit worried with the discrepancy between
HOST_CONFIGURE_ARGS that use the plural form, vs those per-package
<foobar>_OPT options.

My feeling is that the plural form looks more logical, so instead of
moving from _OPTS to _OPT, I'd rather like to see a move from _OPT to
_OPTS. But that indeed involves changing a *lot* of packages.

What do others think?
