[PATCH] Deleting ext/util/mkbootstrap
Message ID:

does nothing but print a warning about it being obsolete.  It doesn't
export it anyway, so the script just pukes with "Can't find

This deletes the file.

How can I stoop so low?  Years of practise, that's how. It's been hard
going but now I can stoop lower than a pygmy limbo dancer.
