Correct, the PLIST.FreeBSD file is entirely useless.

Generally you'd do this by adding to PLIST_VARS, e.g. "objcxx",
prepend ${PLIST.objcxx} to each line in the PLIST that is conditional
on it, then in the Makefile have a section which sets PLIST.objcxx=yes
for any OS which needs it (or reverse the logic in this case).
