It is STATIC library! It could not be used by ALREADY compiled &
installed ports! And ALL these ports compile this library by
itself and use OWN version on build stage, and DON'T use installed
And, If I write CONFLICTS=, based on `lib/libiberty.a', IT WILL BE
IMPOSIIBLE to install cross-binutils & cross-gcc EVENT for one platform
together! It is very strange situation, IMHO.
