Isn't it overly cautious ? Tahoe was already removed from gas in 2005 by Alan:
2005-08-11 Alan Modra <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* Makefile.am: Remove a29k, h8500, m88k, tahoe, tic80, w65,
bout and hp300 support.
And I am not sure that BFD really supports it.
Anyway, do we already have a list of obsolete targets ?

I have to dig more deeper. At least the current implementation is somewhat flawed…
