There are more candidates with no users (or very infrequent people
trying to be users) that could be dropped:

 - MirBSD,
 - OSF/1 (we used to get some reports that pkgsrc doesn't bootstrap),
 - QNX (as far as I know there is no native toolchain),
 - Bitrig (formally abandoned project),
 - HP-UX (GDB dropped support for it 5 years ago!),
 - Interix,
 - AIX (I only saw once someone trying to use pkgsrc on it, Perl was
unbuildable for it),
