I've created a branch called "cruft-cleanout" (r225) and have deleted all 
of this stuff from it, leaving only librpsl, peval, rpslcheck and RtConfig 
as the primary targets of the distribution.  The reduction was done by 
removing aoe, roe, CIDRAdvisor, prtraceroute and prpath, and then carefully 
removing unreferenced, auto-generated and redundant code.  This branch now 
contains about 60750 lines of code.  The trunk contains a little more than 
112kLoC, so this is a reduction of 46% of the entire code base.

The next phase of this clean-up is to begin to look at manually removing 
some library dependencies from the remaining code base.  There is some low 
hanging fruit here.

If anyone wants to play around with this branch, you will need to 
regenerate the configure files in /, /src/Core and /src/rpsl using GNU
