There is no way we can ask users to do this. We never intended for
users to modify src/config/Options.lb as a normal part of making a
build work.

The Options.lb file defines a set of config variables, and sets
reasonable default values for them, and for the most part these values
are mainboard and build related. For the most part, all these settings
work across all distros.

I don't want to ask people to start tweaking this file.

We have to find a better way. Let's keep thinking.
