Ugh... i haven't looked at this pkg, but it _should_ be enabled in 

1. If we start about the usability of each pkg, we don't get anything 
   else done. 
2. If it builds and doesn't do any harm to the rest of the system or 
   whatever, I see no reason not to enable this, esp. as this will also 
   be used for binary-okg-generating batch-makes. Excluding this pkg from 
   comm/Makefile will end up in no precompiled binary pkg for endusers in 
   the next release, which is not the intention.
