Hmm sorry?  I meant "there are a bunch of packages in pkgsrc that
actually put -D flags into CPPFLAGS".  If the reason behind the
change in libxml2 is compatibility, then all other packages should
be "fixed" too.

I can think of a maybe-complex tweak to the buildlink wrappers
that could make -D usage transparent.  But before even we may even
consider it, does pkgsrc work with such compilers ATM?  Which are
these?  And at last, don't they have a -D equivalent?
