That code has never been used, so I've just removed it and
the associated documentation:

2006-04-18  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * src/ptx.c (main) [DEFAULT_IGNORE_FILE]: Remove code to use a default
        ignore file.  This has never been enabled.  Reported by Eric Blake.

2006-04-18  Jim Meyering  <address@hidden>

        * coreutils.texi (Input processing in ptx): Remove mention of the
        default --ignore file, /usr/local/lib/eign.  That file has never
        been used.  Reported by Eric Blake.
