it is not documented so far, since the pcc compiler is not quite yet
useful to build NetBSD sources

what HAVE_PCC does is to build a version of pcc during the tools target,
but there is a side effect, in that HAVE_GCC won't default to "4" so
unless you set that manually, the build will fail.

Also, to use the pcc tool binary, you would have to set USETOOLS_PCC=yes

AFAIK, no really
