Joerg suggested rolling this into USE_LANGUAGES instead.  I've done
that here and kicked off a bulk build:

One of the issues I've realised is that neither this nor the CXX_REQD
patch will work in bl3 files if has already been read.

I'm not sure there's a great solution for that, so at least
integrating this into USE_LANGUAGES should get us existing pkglint
warnings about setting it after

Please help testing on NetBSD, especially with problematic packages
like libreoffice, I don't yet have a fast NetBSD VM to test in.
