Re: [PATCH] make libbfd (binutils) usage optional in graphics/cairo, un-breaking it for modern GNU/Linux

I presume the symbol-lookup internal feature in cairo is rather obscure
and people are not hurt if it is disabled by default. An unnecessary
dependency on a binutils lib is bigger pain, IMHO. The attached patch
adds an option 'bfd' which is disabled by default to achieve that.

If pkgsrc still works without the symbol lookup feature, I would just disable it, instead of adding an option.
