Several base system components are written in C++, and the WITHOUT_CXX option is not regularly tested and is often broken. I fixed a number of WITHOUT_CXX issues in response to Michael Dexter's recent Build Option Survey runs, but it will break again absent ongoing effort. This does not seem like a useful endeavour given the limitations it imposes on the resulting system. I'm proposing we remove the WITHOUT_CXX option and have opened a review to do so: https://reviews.freebsd.org/D33108
