Short progress update.
Excerpts from Ingmar Vanhassel's message of Thu Oct 22 00:23:21 +0200 2009:
> Bo & me had a look at our exlibs in arbor, and I made a little list of
> which (parts of) exlibs we could remove from Exherbo.
> Thoughts or comments?
> - eutils.exlib:
> enewuser(), enewgroup(): Only only versions of hal use this, so as far
> as I know these can go. The latest version uses Accounts.
> - fixheadtails.exlib: Two packages used this unnecessarily (exim, pth),
> I've just fixed these. OK to remove?
> - mount-boot.exlib: Nothing uses this. Is it useful?
> - toolchain-funcs.exlib:
> * tc-getPROG() and all its wrappers. As I understand it, these're only
> useful for crosscompiling, which exhereses currently don't support
> at all. I propose removing them and figuring out the proper way to
> handle these when we add crosscompiling support.
> These are used in quite some packages.
Not removed yet. I want to check what this'll break first, unless
someone beats me to it.
> * gcc-specs*() and friends. One package uses this (pycrypto), and I'm
> not sure it needs to.
Removed, as was gen_usr_ldscript().
