So it's just about merging to 8-stable.

I made a diff between -current and 8-stable, and there are a lot of  
differences. Instead of merging just the entries for the jails, it  
would be better to merge nearly everything. The problem is that this  
requires a lot of testing (delete old files, installworld, check if  
files reappear -> need to be removed from the list to remove with  
delete-old/-libs) and the libs need to be checked for the correct  
version number too.

Anyone out there willing to take the stuff in  
/usr/src/tools/build/mk/OptionalObsoleteFiles.inc from current for his  
favourite WITHOUT_xxx option and test it in the above described way? I  
do not have the resources (time/machine) to do it, but I would be  
willing to commit tested parts.
