Okay.  I see what you're trying to get at but:

a) Not everybody has the source installed,
and b) Not everybody has it compiled.

  Does anybody here think it would be acceptable for the port to require
the source?  That doesn't seem a good idea to me.  How would I go about
incorporating just libbfd and libiberty into my port?  Is it possible?

  Thanks very much,
