I suppose -- but we have relatively many configurations that probably
won't build, at least if you start combining various options, and
including langauges beyond just C and C++.
I'd be content with a patch that issued a warning, but declaring a port
obsolete has often been contentions, and I'd hate to rush into it.
Maybe we need a third category - 'at risk'. Such a port will typically
have no active maintainer, some likely serious bugs and might at some
future date be obsoleted if no maintainer steps forward.
That seems eminently reasonable.
