Description

The SUNWonld package, used to deliver test versions of the link-editor and associated tools has reached the end of its useful life in illumos.
Given the disparate nature of target systems (distributions), it's not practical to build a SUNWonld on one system and provide it to an arbitrary other, and since the source is open there's no real hardship in just providing a diff (or a set of binaries built appropriately).

The useful parts will be retained in other ways/places:
- providing version information to be displayed with 'ld -V' etc. Kept
- building the provided demos to ensure they're still correct. Moved into the regular build
