Just started rebuilding everything on netbsd-9/amd64 and first build
casualty seems to be git-base with an ICE (see below). I'm very much
in favour of moving to more secure defaults - could I suggest
something along the lines of confirming the docs for overriding on a
per package basis are all ready, make an announcement (including links
to the docs :-p) encouraging people to test now, with a plan to switch
after the next branch?

pkgsrc/devel/git-base build error - I assume this is limited to some
combination of gcc version - once I track down which option is causing
the problem should the disabling be based on NetBSD version & use of
gcc, or gcc version?
