Well, there exists a C++ compiler on UnixWare that would need them.
It's just that the need isn't very pressing.  The one person I know
to be using it presumably knows how to work around this issue
(configure CXX='/path/to/compile CC').

I think there are some older Fortran compilers that would need them.
Let's be pragmatic: if someone steps forward to state that she uses
one of them regularly outside of a computer museum, and we should
please support it, then let's do it.  Not earlier.
