Thanks for yet another useful tool.  But I often deal with software
originally developed under Linux that uses GNU tools including fmt.
This is why I asked my question about USE_TOOLS+=gfmt.
gmake, gsed, gm4, bash, ksh, tcsh, tclsh, bison, flex...
all they are supported, even unzip and unzoo(!), why not gfmt?
