New a.out/ELF development packages

Please note that I'm only announcing this on debian-devel as I expect
we'll probably want to tweak a few things before normal users actually
get their hands on these.

I've uploaded the first cut at the new a.out and ELF development
packages to ftp.debian.org.  Only the binary (.deb) and diff files are
currently there.  It will probably take all night to upload the source
files to my machine at work so I won't upload them until tomorrow.

Here is the complete file list and checksums:

To install, you should first remove your current libc, binutils and
gcc packages like this:

	dpkg --purge --force-depends libc binutils gcc

You should then install the new a.out packages, libc4, aout-binutils
and aout-gcc.  To build a.out programs, you should either put
/usr/i486-linuxaout/bin in your PATH before /usr/bin or explicitly
invoke the various programs as /usr/i486-linuxaout/bin/foo.

Finally, you should install the new ELF packages, libc5, libc5-dev,
binutils and gcc.  To build ELF programs, just build normally as ELF
is now the default.

The following things remain to be done:

1. Split the libc4 package into libc4 and libc4-dev versions.  The
latter package (along with aout-binutils and aout-gcc) would only
be needed to build a.out programs.

2. Fully Debianize the libc5 packages.  The current packages are still
repackaged versions of H.J. Lu's binary packages.

3. Start converting other packages to ELF.
