I will apply the abovementioned patch ASAP and let somebody else with janitorial spare cleanup cycles propose removal of
*-knetbsd-* then.
Given previous discussion in https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2015-04/msg00582.html someone may also be in a position to remove *-openbsd3-* support, FWIW.
I personally cannot take care of these due to limited (essentially non-existing ;) spare time.
Same, BTW for Ultrix support which was officially removed from GCC last cycle, IIRC -- unless config entries are meant to be sticky from a GNU tool chain support POV per design/decision?

Either way, cannot clean these up properly ATM and not familiar with those policies, so punting for now..

Cheers,
