 Module Name:	pkgsrc
 Committed By:	tnn
 Date:		Sun Jul  1 23:27:43 UTC 2007
 Modified Files:
 	pkgsrc/bootstrap: bootstrap
 	pkgsrc/pkgtools/bootstrap-extras: Makefile PLIST
 Added Files:
 	pkgsrc/pkgtools/bootstrap-extras/files: xargs-sh
 Log Message:
 xargs(1) on Interix is broken. It executes the utility on the command line
 even if standard input is the empty string. Install a wrapper script
 bundled with pkgtools/bootstrap-extras to deal with this. This is an
 attempt at a permanent workaround for the problem described in PR pkg/25777
 which has regressed since it was initially fixed.
 We can now bootstrap again on Interix 3.5.
