I don't agree with that. We have a large and growing CI infrastructure
to regularly test functionality and are continually adding to it over
time. But it's important to test and maintain what is actually used
and is useful. Disabling C++ support made sense when obrien@ added the
original knob in 2000, but it makes less sense today when parts of
FreeBSD are written in C++.
