The ibcs2 and svr4 compatibility code has outlived their useful lives,
mainly because their target platforms are practically extinct.

They will be eliminated from -current in the coming week, unless very
compelling reasons to the contrary are put on the table.

The change consists of the elimination of the following directories
and assorted changes to makefiles and sys/conf and various NOTES
to record this fact:


Poul-Henning Kamp       | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20
phk at FreeBSD.ORG         | TCP/IP since RFC 956
FreeBSD committer       | BSD since 4.3-tahoe
Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
