I'm not sure about the games that come (or used to come) as (an
optional) part of the system, because I have WITHOUT_GAMES=yes in my
/etc/src.conf. However, the fact that that setting causes no errors or
warnings and that it's still documented in the src.conf(5) man page,
suggests that they're still there, at least when building from source.

I'm hoping that they will be staged. I play Quake II single player
(the original mission pack and the xatrix, rogue and zaero mission
packs), using the games/q2p engine on my desktop. I'd hate to lose that.
