System: NetBSD Nocturno 3.99.3 NetBSD 3.99.3 (Nocturno) #22: Thu May 5 04:51:13 CEST 2005 juan@Nocturno:/home/juan/build/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/Nocturno i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386

	This code on pkgsrc/mk/ ignores the empty
	value from USE_LANGUAGES:

# Always require a C compiler for proper compiler detection.
.if empty(USE_LANGUAGES:Mc)

	The compiler wrappers for the 'c' language are always
	created even with USE_LANGUAGES empty.

	Not really a problem on modern computers, but maybe
	in slow architectures this might be slow.
