These are the two entries in mk.conf that I've created to enable me to
build gcc3 with support for the languages required here.

# Path to ADA compiler.
# Possible: Any valid pathname
# Default:

GCC3_LANGUAGES= c, c++, ada
# A comma seperated list of languages supported by gcc3. Supported languages
# are ada, c, c++, f77, java, objc. All available languages will be configured
# if no value is given.
# Possible: ada, c, c++, f77, java, objc
# Default:

If default is empty, gcc3 will build all supported languages, including ada
if a suitable ada compiler is found. Alternatively, set the default value
to the languages that are desired for a standard installation.

Once again, I believe that we should support all languages if NetBSD
is not to stay a "Kernel Hackers" only operating system.
