Clean up old PRs

There are several PRs that are years (literally) old. For example:
o 2005/10/13 ports/87397 edwin [patch] incorrect use of PAPERSIZE make variable in some ports
Maybe it is time that some of these extremely old PRs be put to rest.
Perhaps a new classification should be added. Presently there are
several possible classifications:
o - open
A problem report has been submitted, no sanity checking performed.
a - analyzed
The problem is understood and a solution is being sought.
f - feedback
Further work requires additional information from the originator or
the community - possibly confirmation of the effectiveness of a
p - patched
A patch has been committed, but some issues (MFC and / or
confirmation from originator) are still open.
r - repocopy
The resolution of the problem report is dependent on a repocopy
operation within the CVS repository which is awaiting completion.
s - suspended
The problem is not being worked on, due to lack of information or
resources. This is a prime candidate for somebody who is looking
for a project to do. If the problem cannot be solved at all, it
will be closed, rather than suspended.
c - closed
A problem report is closed when any changes have been integrated,
documented, and tested -- or when fixing the problem is abandoned.
I am proposing a new one:
x - expired
This report is over 2 years old. If no one has bothered to fix it
by now, then in all probability no one will.
