Removal of obsolete /bin/* Provides from coreutils

Hash: SHA256

Hello,

After removal[0] of other ancient Provides from coreutils, it is time[1] to
remove next legacy part, /bin/* Provides.

There are some number of packages still relying on them, I've fixed most of
them already, although there are some packages which need some special care
(including reporting to upstream). I'm going to open bugs in a few.

List of all affected (including already fixed) packages:

- - ambari-server (ambari)
- - cowsay-beefymiracle (cowsay-beefymiracle)
- - docbook-dtds (docbook-dtds)
- - flow-tools/flow-tools-rrdtool (flow-tools)
- - fmtools-tkradio (fmtools)
- - gofed/gofed-docker/gofed-scan (gofed)
- - iwidgets (iwidgets)
- - mx4j (mx4j)
- - nagios-plugins-log (nagios-plugins)
- - sgml-common (sgml-common)
- - pam_mount (pam_mount)
- - ntop (ntop)
- - redhat-lsb-core (redhat-lsb)
- - rubygem-apipie-rails (rubygem-apipie-rails)
- - sound-theme-freedesktop (sound-theme-freedesktop)

This should be fixed now. I dropped the file responsible for the
require, since it appears to be dead code anyway ...
