Actually, this didn't work either. It ended up trying to pull in lang/gcc, which
tried to pull in pkgtools/pkg_install-info, which then tried to pull in lang/gcc

The "workaround" which seems to be working thus far is:


Of course, now it's still calling 'CC' instead of 'g++' for a C++ compiler (which
again is MIPSpro here). Time to sort that one out next.
