The funny dependencies, the fact that neither of them are linked with -lc,
and I don't think the libc5 library should be conflicting with libc5-dev.
Also, it apparently doesn't build cleanly.

Fine. It's hardly a great loss these days.

If we do take them out, we have to take out a.out runtime support too (since
they're needed to compile it). I don't think that's a great loss these days,
but some people might disagree.
