(ITS#7054) Please drop support to FreeBSD 1.x

Submission from: (NULL) (

Code duplicated from GNU libtool and autotools uses 'freebsd1*' rather than
'freebsd1.*' to test if the system is FreeBSD 1.x.  This logic would match
FreeBSD 10.0, causing problem when building shared libraries.

I'd like to propose that FreeBSD 1.x support be dropped since it's obsolete in
1994 (17 years ago).

The patch is just for reference, it also drops FreeBSD 2.x and FreeBSD 3.x
support but it's not complete.

A libtool patched with git revision e94c6d6e0359d92f08f491f57e0ef3371e978952
would also be required to build OpenLDAP properly.
