Log Message:
lists: Remove bogus and obsolete entries.

These must stay around so applications linked against them will still
work after upgrade, even if now points to


- I'm willing to believe the rump modules have a different story so I
  left those obsolete entries alone.

- was never supposed to be exposed publicly anyway and never
  went out in a release.  (Maybe this information should be recorded

- Same is probably true of lib{gmp,mpc,mpfr}.so, not sure of the
  history.  Maybe too, no idea what that is.

- was moved from /usr/lib to /lib, so it's legitimate for
  the debug data to live there too now.  (XXX Maybe we should have a
  separate marker for this.)

- Libraries under /usr/tests are not used by normal applications, so
  they can safely be deleted when obsoleted.

Note: The symlink for a library that has been deleted
altogether, not just upgraded, can be obsoleted.  Loadable modules
that applications aren't linked against can be obsoleted, even if
some of them like npf ext_*.so or pam_*.so are formally versioned
(for reasons unclear to me).

Note: This means that incremental builds may complain about these
.so.N and .so.N.M files in destdir (PR misc/57581), but it's much
worse for an upgrade to break working applications.
