Default For your consideration

This is a little off topic, but I've seen you mention "building" Opera in several threads

Opera is a closed source, proprietary product owned by Opera Software ASA. The www/opera port does not build from source, the 'make' merely extracts and installs the Opera Linux binary directly from the distfile, obtained from Opera Software. Read the Makefile in www/opera, and you will see:
NO_BUILD=    Yes
along with the installation commands.

1. On OpenBSD, Opera is restricted to i386 only, due to requiring the Linux compatibility ABI.

2. Opera cannot be distributed as an OpenBSD package due to license restrictions on use of the Opera binaries.
