Well... part of the purpose of pkgsrc is to make the build available,
so if any one of you sorts it out then it's available to the other two :-)

My inclination at the moment is to close this PR, as the patch in it
isn't useful any more; but if you get around to trying it again and
have new patches, please send them along in new PRs, and hopefully
this time they won't rot in gnats for six years.

If the thing with ar is still an issue and affects packages other than
this one, please file a PR on that too. (Preferably, using a small and
well-understood package as a demonstration case...) It should be
possible to have the pkgsrc wrapper for ar run cc -ar instead if
that's the best thing to do. (Or translate ar -cru into equivalent ar
-cq operations, or whatever.)
