It's not necessary, is it?

OpenGL works perfectly fine on m68k. Like I said before, if we start
throwing out packages "because they're not useful anyway", we could just
as well stop the port.

If you, as the maintainer of OpenAL, feel that it is pointless to
support it on m68k, then that is your prerogative. But it is not for you
to say that we should remove anything else.
