This is mainly due to you installing binary packages. On my FreeBSD
box, my /etc/make.conf lists the options I want for packages. When a
program gets installed, it will be configured and compiled with the
dependencies needed by the options I set. In your case, you get a
binary suitable for "everyone", which includes every possible option.
