This support was speifically designed *out* of the new toolchain layout
because we now have src/tools.  The overhead of maintaining a unified libbfd
(and the overhead of using it 8-) doesn't really outweigh simply making a
src/tools toolchain for the target.

(Remember that we once had this support in the old src/gnu/dist layout, as a
UNIFIED_BFD mk.conf option.  Later discussion about the new world toolchain
led to the decision to desupport this in favor of simply using src/tools.)
