zig is now broken because llvm was updated and the version of zig in pkgsrc
requires the previous llvm release.

zig could be updated to the next release, but that fails for other reasons -
NetBSD support being broken for reasons that need investigating.

To fix it, someone needs to either fix the new zig on NetBSD, or
(probably easier) reimport llvm8.

I'd also like to see working zig on on NetBSD in the next pkgsrc release.
