System: NetBSD 3.99.15 NetBSD 3.99.15 (GENERIC-1.696-20060125) #8: Wed Jan 25 04:59:39 ICT 2006 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	First, I am building using pkg_comp with libkver and
	NetNSD 3.0 (RELEASE) sets installed.

	Building sysutils/apcupsd fails at the configure stage,
	complaining that the C compiler cannot create executables

	pkg_comp build sysutils/apcupsd

		I doubt that pkg_comp is related to this problem, but
		the use of an uppatched/uupdated NetBSD 3.0 system
		as the (apparent) base system might be (in particular,
		it has gcc 3.3.3)

	What I see is ...

=> Checking for portability problems in extracted files
=> Modifying GNU configure scripts to avoid --recheck
=> Replacing config-guess with pkgsrc versions
=> Replacing config-sub with pkgsrc versions

	Checking the (relevant part of) config.log, I see ...

configure: failed program was:

	The "failed program" contents don't seem to be relevant (it was
	about as close to the canonical empty C program as it is possible
	to write with current rules for what C programs must contain...)

	I suspect that the problem is as suggested by the WARNING
	and that there simply is no available C compiler in the
	build envronment (there is certainly no cc nor gcc nor netbsd-elf-gcc
	noe anything else that might plausibly be a C compiled in the
	.tools directory).


as the error messages says (warning).   While that might possibly not
seem to be required for apcupsd itself (a USE_LANGUAGES+=c++ line exists
alreay) it does seem necessary to get past the configure stage.

In any case, with this one line addition, the package builds fine.
