altdev stuff on arches that don't need them (was Re: Compiling bash?)

I've got patches to bash I intend to send to Guy that simply disable
creation of the altdev stuff on everything but i386 and m68k.  We
don't need it, and they've got all sorts of wacky hardcoded depends we
don't need (like ldso).

I've cc'd debian-devel because I would like to suggest to all
developers that when they create altdev and libc5-compat libs that
they make them only for the platforms that need them, which, I
believe, means just i386 and m68k.
