All of the former either follow a certain standard with the usual
GNUification or are used extraction tools or have multiple versions
installed. I personally don't see the need for gfmt, since only a single
implementation is available and most pkgsrc platforms won't have it as
host tool anyway. I can even think of Linux platforms without it.
