Gotcha. It's a simple enough patch to devel/binutils to bring back
libiberty.a and update the Makefile to current USES standards. I can submit
via send-pr unless there are any objections or other feedback.

Ideally this would be committed at the same time as the removal of the
other two ports and the related updated dependencies but I'm not sure if I
can submit something like that with send-pr or if someone with the ability
to make it happen just needs to do it.
