It is an in-side joke by some FreeBSD developers, that we keep alive on
the 5-CURRENT branch.  It isn't used in release branches.
It was started by Alfred Perlstein, and really came to life during the
sparc64 porting work:

<d00d1> I'm having a lot of trouble building world on my Sparc Ultra
<sparcguy> d00d1: you've got your ultra on your desk don't you?
<d00d1> yeah
<sparcguy> d00d1: that's an unsupported configuration, sorry
