I have a source tree somewhere with these upgraded, for some reason I 
forgot to commit it.  There is good reason for having these tools in the 
GCCSDK tree and I'd rather keep them there.  These tools can be called 
from 'make'.  If we have multiple copies of the tools floating around, 
some compiled by different versions of UnixLib, then you'll find that 
nothing works since internal structures like 'proc' change from time to 
time.  You'd have to wait until we have a standard ABI before moving 
these tools out of the tree.

I don't see that it causes any problems having the tools present.
