	Agreed - my feeling is that it might be something in the buildlink

	Strangely the mail/imap-uw build used to work with
	.if defined(USE_GCC3)
	.  include "../../lang/gcc3/"

	I'll try reverting part of the --host=i386--netbsdelf2.0 patch
	to see if that helps. Obviously there will be some time before
	I follow up on this with details of the result... :)
