I am not doing random things. I am merely protecting an include of
nbcompat.h exactly as (properly) detected by the configure script, and
as advertized by config.h, and additionally explicitly provided by
pkgsrc itself (through the features feature). That makes two safeguards,
and the end result is more portable.

As a matter of fact, all of this was inspired by a careful read of
mk/features/ I do not think the content of this file is
random :p
