Description

IPD 16 - EOF SunOS 4 Compatibility - https://github.com/illumos/ipd/blob/master/ipd/0016/README.md - approved the removal of the aoutexec module, but it was never done.

Note that this module only exists on SPARC, which is also sunset per IPD 19.

We should remove the module and references to it. This is a small step on the cleanups for sparc.

Test was just booting this build on omniOS. There really is no change here for x86, and we are removing SPARC so no effort was given to verifying anything for SPARC.
