    x11-misc/xxkb: force gcc -E for imake's generation
    Requires traditional cpp support and is broken in all sort of ways
    with clang-cpp / -E. Can still use clang & friends for everything else.
    Ideally these packages need to be built another way or last rited,
    imake will just accumulate more problems.
