Remove authselect-compat package
Authselect replaced authconfig tool in Fedora 28. To enable some level of backwards compatibility, it ships the authconfig command as a wrapper around authselect calls in package "authselect-compat". Authselect is now well adopted and the shim compatibility layer should be removed by removing the authselect-compat package.
