This is my situation.  Legacy system with older compiler.  Some
plstforms do not have adequate thread support for the newer compilers.
pkgsrc is a very stable,  efective infrastructure. build and
management system.  I would support this.  This would attract new people
to pkgsrc IMHO.

What packages should we be adding (back), then, in order to make this useful for you?

And is the current bootstrap process usable?
