A good rule of thumb is probably therefore if an arch goes for more than
6 months, or one significant release without getting the change to
pass_all backed out again then the dead code can be removed.

It changes no functionality, these architectures have been using
pass_all for some time.

lt_cv_file_magic_test_file is only used when lt_cvs_deplibs_check_method is file_magic, so you can prune more aggressively.

I was fairly sure this was the case, but found one or two where the
assignment of lt_cv_file_magic_test_file had been left even though
lt_cv_deplibs_check_method had been set to pass_all; "solaris*" springs
Erring on the side of caution seemed a better bet for the first try.

I agree to remove the stuff that was already pass_all for libtool-1-5 if you
resubmit with the extra tidying.


Thanks!  Applied to HEAD.  Sorry for the delay.
