Probably just a consequence of when Joerg's last build started. We
believe it to be fixed, and it works for me, so I'm going to drop it
from the list.

Well, you made it build... judging from what I saw it needs patching
if we expect it to run, but I'll tackle that sometime later.

Me too (on both); that's what the (*) means here.

Blah. Should we mark it BROKEN?

Is there any way (not during the freeze) to have the tools
infrastructure reject invalid things in USE_TOOLS?

Heh, true... that would be, excluding a few that work in other contexts:
editors/xemacs-current (AIUI this mostly needs updating)
lang/ocamlduce (this probably just needs updating)
net/openafs (probably a bad idea to remove)
If www/sope is really an older version of devel/SOPE (this is not
entirely clear at first glance and I haven't looked deeper) it should
definitely be removed.
