Log Message:
Update to binutils "". (The ".0.0" is to allow any PKGREVISION
bumps to correctly sort before "2.14.1", and "", and so on.)

Follows is a list of additions to the "NEWS" files since 2.13. The "NEWS"
files were apparently not updated for "" however, so all of this
is not really new. The "--with-sysroot" and "--with-lib-path" configure
options for "ld" are truly new, though, and the package now takes advantage
of "--with-lib-path" to prevent picking up crud from "${PREFIX}/lib", to
better support using this "ld" with which to build pkgsrc packages.

----- binutils/binutils/NEWS -----

* Added --info switch to objcopy and strip.

* Support for Vitesse IQ2000 added by Red Hat.

* Added 'S' encoding to strings to allow the display of 8-bit characters.

* Added --prefix-symbols=<text>, --prefix-sections=<text> and
  --prefix-alloc-sections=<text> to objcopy.

* readelf can handle the extensions to the DWARF2 spec used by the Unified
  Parallel C compiler.

* BFD no longer declares a "boolean" type, to avoid clashes with other
  headers that declare the same.  Users of BFD should replace boolean,
  false and true, with int, 0 and 1, or define their own boolean type.

* Support for IP2K added by Denis Chertykov.

----- binutils/gas/NEWS -----

* Added support for MIPS32 Release 2.

* Added support for Xtensa architecture.

* Support for Intel's iWMMXt processor (an ARM variant) added.

* An assembler test generator has been contributed and an example file that
  uses it (gas/testsuite/gas/all/test-gen.c and test-exmaple.c).

* Support for SH2E added.

* GASP has now been removed.

* Support for Texas Instruments TMS320C4x and TMS320C3x series of
  DSP's contributed by Michael Hayes and Svein E. Seldal.

* Support for the Ubicom IP2xxx microcontroller added.

----- binutils/ld/NEWS -----

* Added support for Xtensa architecture.

* Added --with-sysroot configure switch to specify a target system root, for
  linking against a target filesystem image.

* Added --accept-unknown-linker-format to restore old linker behaviour (pre
  2.14) of silently accepting and linking in any files in an unknown binary
  file format.

* Added --no-omagic to undo the effects of the -N option.

* Support for Texas Instruments TMS320C4x and TMS320C3x series of
  DSP's contributed by Michael Hayes and Svein E. Seldal.

* Added --with-lib-path configure switch to specify default value for

* ARM port to QNX operating system added by Graeme Peterson.

* IP2K support added by Denis Chertykov.
