I have not heard of anyone running gated in a really long time (maybe 15
years, certainly 10).  People mostly moved to zebra and then quagga.  So
it seems ok to me to delete gated.

(Probably it's good to give notice of proposed deletion to
pkgsrc-users.  I have the impression many users who don't hack on pkgsrc
are there.)
