This surprises me a bit. Do you have any references to EOL notices
from the manufacturers? Yes, they are not as easy to find as they
used to be, but that's mostly because less and less people use them.
But i'd be really suprised if we already reached the level where they
are not worth to be produced anymore.

Other than that, check findchips.com. There you can find which of the
big distributors has what chips on stock.

Oh.. and if you choose SMD varinats instead of DIL, then you get
more selection.

The trouble with you, Shev, is you don't say anything until you've saved
up a whole truckload of damned heavy brick arguments and then you dump
them all out and never look at the bleeding body mangled beneath the heap
