*DESTTREE variables are mentioned in helper descriptions and the variable table. *OPTIONS only in the former.
We should either ban them (remove them and refer via 'most recent call', like in dodoc, or make them 'conceptual'), or use them consistently for all helpers.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 173630 ***
Thinking about it, issues are different enough to deserve two bugs.
Using bug 173630 for DESTTREE and INSDESTTREE.
Reopening this bug for INSOPTIONS, DIROPTIONS, EXEOPTIONS, and LIBOPTIONS.

Do not mention various *OPTIONS variables.
Actually PMS doesn't say that *OPTIONS are shell variables or that they would be exported to the ebuild environment. Also all command descriptions explicitly require that the insopts etc. functions are used for setting these variables.
