please remove xserver-xorg-video-sunbw2 from the archive

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xorg (Ubuntu)
xserver-xorg-video-sunbw2 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-sunbw2

This driver is obsolete, since it cannot be built against xserver 1.6. The reason is that the needed headers have been removed from the source. It was discussed (briefly) on #debian-x as well:

23:16 < tjaalton> if I'm not mistaken, -sunbw2 will fail to build against 1.6 since the header
                  it needs has been removed (xf1bpp.h)
23:17 < jcristau> yeah sunbw2 is dead i think

and I doubt no-one is running ubuntu on a sparc workstation that _needs_ monochrome..
