Thanks for your effort.  Considering that this is exponential, even with
only 8 options, that's like 256 possible different builds (at 16 options
that's up to 65536) ... there is no sensible way to test all possible
combinations.  I'm not sure how tinderbox works on Gentoo side, but I
have no issue passing these through as they're found, and (where
possible) providing fixes.

Thanks for your efforts, myself, and I believe everybody else leveraging
off of your code, really appreciates your efforts.

Kind Regards,
