dev-cpp/cppserv would need working dev-cpp/sptk and we have none:

the only working versions got marked as "obsolete" by upstream due to
"undisclosed reasons" whatever that means

Not that I personally care, but it seems like this could be "solved"
by just removing fltk support, rather than nuking it completely.

don't think we should be "clinging on" the unmaintained packages that badly
from general overview of the sptk homepage, the whole point of the
package seems to be around fltk (and thus, X)


and from broader view... sometimes it seems the politics around package
removal has become a burden, rather than a tool
