Last users of obsolete feature "defines TARGET_HAVE_NAMED_SECTIONS to
false": 32-bit PA HP-UX (64-bit HP-UX is ELF like GNU/Linux, so OK),
pdp11, pre-ELF OpenBSD ports. (I'm not aware of that obsolete feature
particularly causing problems, however. But the implication for pdp11
would be that if the port were to stay with that feature being removed, it
should move to ELF - the e_machine value EM_PDP11 having been allocated by
Lars Brinkhoff on 30 May 2002, but I don't know if there's an ABI.)
