I have grep'ed the NetBSD source tree, and the System V compatible IPC
subsystem is compiled by default on nearly all Tier One ports, the
exceptions being uncommon embedded board where I guess the port user is
knowing what he is doing.
So I think it is safe to drop that sentence.

PS: you can use the official man.netbsd.org if you're looking for NetBSD
man pages
