remove long obsolete libsys
libsys is a vestige of System V Release 3 which has been obsolete since at least SVR4.1, and probably SVR4.
It was intended to provide the system call interfaces without the rest of the C library, we implement it as a somewhat generated filter on libc.
For weird ABI reasons it's SONAME is defined to be "/usr/lib/ld.so.1", which we have special handling in rtld to translate back to libsys.
The library has no users anyone has ever been able to find, and in the extremely likely eventuality catering to them is easy.
We should remove this wart
