I think there are a few pitfalls we have to deal here. CDL does only 
emit the #defines when the boolean is true, otherwise it won't emit 
#defines (also true for additional defines). If we want to go that 
route, we would have to make sure that the CDL's defaults are also the 
defaults of the lwip's opts.h file, which in my opinion is not a good 
solution to maintain. But I think what we could do is something like

cdl_option CYGOPT_IP_FORWARD {
     display         "IP forwarding"
     flavor          bool
     default_value   1
     define          IP_FORWARD

and then in lwipopts.h only have:

#ifndef IP_FORWARD
# define IP_FORWARD 0

That would probably make things a bit easier. I don't know if it would 
work as a general solution though, would have to check that. But I'm 
just getting ready for my holidays :)
