Hello ports,

  Many my ports have conflicts with other ones.
  And conflicting file is one: `lib/libiberty.a'.
  This file is installed by many variants of gvv, binutils & gdb.
  But I don't think, that this library is ever used after instllation.
  Each port build it again and again.

  I don't think, it is good idea to "CONFLICTS=" all these binutils &
  gcc. May be, we need some "general" patch (like libtool's one) to
  disable installation of this library? Something like


  In port makefile?

Best regards,
