PROPOSAL: removing src/expect

Hey, I have some good news about Cygwin.

Aaron LaFramboise stepped up and ran the gdb test suite on Cygwin
with the versions of Tcl+Expect+Dejagnu that already ship with Cygwin.
That's TCL 8.4, Expect 5.26, Dejagnu 1.4.2.x.

  http://sources.redhat.com/ml/gdb-testers/2004-q2/msg00159.html

There is one problem with expect on gdb.base/maint.exp.
The problem is intermittent and happens with some runs and not others.
Other than that, the normal Cygwin versions of Tcl+Expect+Dejagnu
work fine for testing gdb.
