BTW, when grepping through git-managed files, it's normally a lot faster
to run 'git grep' than the normal grep command (in case you were not
aware of it).

Yup, it looks that way.  Running git log -S'admin.pl' reveals that this


removed the last use of this script.  I'm not an expert on the packaging
part of the build system, but I'm pretty certain that this script is
unused for real.

But just in case it is still used externally, let me CC Andras who is
more familiar with this part of the code.

I think you've done your due diligence to make sure the script is now
unused.  Unless someone else screams and tells you "Please don't remove
it!", I would just remove that file in your gerrit patch, to at least
have Jenkins tell us if it still is buildable on all major platforms.
