The MESSAGE file for lang/gcc34 is outdated and gives incorrect
information on how to make use of the package for pkgsrc builds.
According to the emails referenced below, the current way to use
the package is simply to add GCC_REQD+=3.4 to /etc/mk.conf or a
specific package's makefile.
(The pkgsrc documentation also mentions this under section 5.3.1, but
of course I didn't find that until I'd run into the problem.)
