Log Message:
devel: Remove rx

This no longer has any users in pkgsrc and was discontinued upstream.

The GNU website says:

RX has been decommissioned, since no one has come forward to revive it, to improve it over the other free software regex library programs that are available, which would be quite a big task. (If you 
are interested after all, email <>

For a current regex implementation, we recommend using the regex code from Gnulib; see also the Regular expressions chapter in the Gnulib manual. (Also, if all you need is POSIX regexp functionality, 
any modern C library should provide that.)

The one-time regex standalone library has likewise been decommissioned in favor of the above.

(It's been unmaintained since at least 2010).
