Nobody has done anything with these and they've been unbuildable for
years. I'd say it's time to delete them.

Nobody has done anything with this either. Marc Espie said that
OpenBSD ports has DESTDIR hacks for ezm3; if anybody wants to keep
this cruft they might want to try finding and merging them.

Otherwise, well, I looked at ezm3 a while back and I would strongly
recommend against bothering to try to fix it directly. I would say
it's time to give up on cvsup.

These are obsolete and (AFAIK) pretty well useless.

These have been fixed.

Now that ghc's been fixed, these should be doable. I'll look into it
if nobody else gets to it first.
