Yes, but the warning makes portmgrs sad.  It leaves 'junk' in the
output of the file that's used to document why certain packages were
skipped during a build.

Someone(TM) should write this up as a hint for the Dos-And-Donts in
the Porter's Handbook.

(This particular thing is even worse on clang, where other, non-sysctl,
tests have this same annoying side-effect.)
