Deleting the check is certainly one possibility - I was assuming it was
added for some rational reason, though perhaps with modern pkgsrc that
reason no longer applies.

It can (more or less) build it now I think - the problem is that it is
deciding not to, when it probably should be building it.
Then the other problem you described in your PR bites, and makes a mess
of later compilations (which would almost certainly happen just the same
way on a virgin 3.0 - it isn't pkg_comp that's causing that problem, pkg_comp
just makes it easier to reproduce, over and over).
