Hi list,

I'm working on a BSD Licensed objcopy/strip rewrite(in p4) based on
libelf, I really want to know the answers to a few questions listed
below, and please do not hesitate if you have other related
suggestions.  Thanks in advance!

1. Do you often use object/strip on 'ar' archives?

2. Do you often convert ELF to raw binary, iHex, S-Record or
vice versa?

3. What features do you like to add into objcopy?

4. What features would be useful for FreeBSD build system
and is currently missing in objcopy?
