#96: Remove crosspost backend program

 The crosspost backend program has not been installed since INN 2.3.0;  it
 does not work any longer, even with traditional spool, because the storage
 manager code does not have access to the "!DoLinks" (-L) flag setting of

 According to Russ Allbery in an [https://lists.isc.org/pipermail/inn-
 workers/2008-December/000114.html inn-workers posting], "the idea is that
 with a tradspool spool, you can offload the process of creating symlinks
 to a separate process and do a bit more work in parallel.  However, at
 this point, anyone who cares a lot about performance is probably using a
 different storage backend for most of their groups.  At this point, I
 think we can just delete it."

 The program still existed in the source tree in case someone would want to
 clean it up and make it useable again.  It does not seem to be worthwile.
