lmbench DESCR tweak

Vadim Zhukov
This would be first REVISION since 1999. Not sure if someone still
uses it, but DESCR wants a tweak definitely. Okay? Or just zap it?

After more looking at the port, and receiving an explicit okay for the
corresponding action from aja@, I choose to go the tedu way. At least
because license marker in the Makefile is a lie, beacuse this software
imposes additional restrictions on how it could be used, and that
makes it non-GPL:

"The set of programs and documentation known as "lmbench" are
distributed under the Free Software Foundation's General Public License
with the following additional restriction (which overrides any
conflicting restriction in the GPL):

You may not distribute results in any public forum, in any publication,
or in any other way if you have modified the benchmarks.

If you have modifications or enhancements that you wish included in
future versions, please mail those to me, Larry McVoy, at [hidden email]."

kirby@ suggested to look for updating port to a more recent version,
but those do contain even more restrictions: you can't sell benchmark
results, even by publishing on a web site with ads. IMHO that's no
way.

So I'm sending this port back to ground, and hoping that zombie
apocalypsis won't happen soon.
