I think we should leave them as a warning. So far I haven't heard a compelling argument to remove them (en masse) other than that people find it aesthetically displeasing for them to remain. At this point, I don't see how it serves pkgsrc users to remove them. I suspect it's about 1/3 things that could be fixed, 1/3 packages that are dead anyway, and 1/3 packages that should be updated anyway, with a few hard cases thrown in. The only ones I have any personal interest in are ezm3/cvsup and ghc/darcs, and slightly arla. It's certainly fair to ask, for each package, if it merits removal independently of not being DESTDIR-capable.
