I think this is a good idea; it's old cruft for compilers that aren't
popular anymore, it doesn't work anyway, and those compilers might have
changed so new versions of them might not even need special directives

If anyone wants to support them, they'll need to put in a lot of effort
and leaving in these stubs is not more helpful than starting from scratch.

Thanks.  I noticed you missed the WATCOM reference in posixwin.scm, so
the attached signed-off copy of your patch has this added to it.
There were also references to the compiler in mannual/Unit library
which I removed as well: the (build-platform) will no longer return
that string, because it was removed from the C_BUILD_PLATFORM
declarations in chicken.h.
