Commit Message

  - gnu-netcat was last updated in 2004 and is not used as a dependency for any IPFire
   addon.
- IPFire has ncat which is used as a dependency for ipfire-netboot, libshout, libvirt
   and squid. gnu-netcat not being required for libvcirt was confirmed by Jonatan.
- nmap/ncat is being actively updated.
- Based on the above this patch is removing gnu-netcat from IPFire.
