Indeed.  Perhaps rilling@ could add conditional logic, or we can just
change pkg_developer to unconditionally depend on the older version
until then.

Calling it a google language is unhelpful.  The point is not that it is
new or who sponsored developement, but that there is not a portable
implementation (and perhaps more precisely, that there was not a
portable implementation already in pkgsrc).
