    Ive got a couple of 2.x apps that has been on the AppStore for over a year.

    They all work fine on 4.0.

    Im a bit confounded by this statement by Apple:

    "[..] the App Store will no longer support applications that target iOS 2.x."

    (http://developer.apple.com/iphone/news/archives/2010/june/)

    Does this mean that I have to rebuild my apps with 4.0 (changing nothing, just a new export) in order for them to remain on the appstore?

    Nobody?

    I don't think it's clear if they will remove apps from the store, but it's possible. I took that statement to mean they wouldn't accept apps with a Base SDK or deployment target less than 3.0. It is clear that they won't accept apps that have a Base SDK different from 4.0 or 3.2 and they want a deployment target of 3.0 or later.

    They will probably push you to at least rebuild for 3.0 using the 3.2 SDK. You might want to get ahead of it so they don't pull your app and then leave you waiting on them to do reviews again.

    I'm going through a problem with my app now where iOS4 broke my app with an API change and I'm stuck waiting for days for my 1 line of code update to be reviewed.
