I dont see the point. we dont say 'if you need telnet and ftp, get
netkit-[telnet|ftp] hints'. Why should a non-essential compiler get
different treatment from any other non-essential package add-on ?

I vote for no mention. we use LANGUAGES=c,c++ for a reason.

If you /must/ put something in, make it general, like 'if you need any
languages other than c or c++, please add them to LANGUAGES=xxx,yyy in
chapter 6'.
