Yes, still working, I only used it to test some code before converting 
it to other compiler, microchip bought hitech but now let compiler to 
die, it never had any vote so I don't even know if someone use it.
So, still working, if you think it should not be deleted, for me I see 
no problem.

C30 was broken for several times, I always find I way to keep it 
running, but it's broken again and I think it's time to move on, because 
XC16 is just a new version of C30 with very small changes, so basically 
a rename from C30 to XC16. Almost 100% of C30 code compile in XC16 
without any change. Also microchip never made C30 for Linux official, 
but XC16 was released was a replacement for C30 with official support 
for Win/Linux/Mac.
