Default Remove obsolete pmask entries from profiles

Hi guys,

Many hardened profiles still pmask the following GCCs:

=sys-devel/gcc-4.3.2*
=sys-devel/gcc-4.4.1*
=sys-devel/gcc-4.4.3-r2
=sys-devel/gcc-4.4.4

These packages are not available in the tree (nor hardened-dev overlay)
anymore, yet are referenced by

/usr/portage/profiles/selinux/2007.0/x86/hardened/package.mask
/usr/portage/profiles/selinux/2007.0/amd64/hardened/package.mask
/usr/portage/profiles/selinux/v2refpolicy/x86/hardened/package.mask
/usr/portage/profiles/selinux/v2refpolicy/amd64/hardened/package.mask
/usr/portage/profiles/hardened/package.mask
/usr/portage/profiles/hardened/linux/package.mask

Okay if those get removed?

Its lint and can be removed. It doesn't do any harm masking a package
that doesn't exist, but it does clutter the already hard to read profiles.
