Neither.  It is surely quite bit-rotted, but the code is still there.  The
BFD code has never been able to properly load ELF binaries, and the exec
server with BFD enabled still uses its native code for ELF.  You'd have to
come up with some other kind of binary that could be meaningfully executed
to have something with which you could try to test the BFD exec code.

I don't know a reason to excise it, since it's in #ifdef already.
