So far we haven't had a unified support for dealing with cases where a specific
version of Linux emulation is necessary. We have the same for GCC versions or
Perl version but not for Linux emulation, so I thought it would be useful to
add similar knobs to the Ports Collection infrastructure. Also, the current
IGNORE reasons that ports give, don't seem quite clear to our users, I got a
PR for my Gentoo port because a user couldn't understand the actual problem.
This is another reason I thought of unifying this part.
bsd.port.mk is portmgr territory (via the GNATS Auto Assign Tool)
Ping? I still think it would be a nice feature.

I'm not sure it's worth the effort. Given currently reported version of 3.2.0, are there any packages which depend on it being set to some other value?
