yes, it does, because nobody who is interested in lang/gcc3-* has
done the required work to properly support it.

the comments in document what happens when the various
USE*GCC* variables are set. if there is any discrepancy between the
comments and reality, it should be fixed ;)

in particular, USE_GCC3 forces lang/gcc3. USE_PKGSRC_GCC forces
lang/gcc, but this is mostly historical and can probably go away now.
