Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.26.1, Package name: binutils-2.26.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The GNU binutils package contains essential tools to assemble, link and
manipulate binary and object files. They are often used with a compiler
and additional libraries for building software.

It includes the GNU linker, the portable GNU assembler, ar for modifying
archives (such as libraries), nm for listing symbols from object files,
objdump for displaying object file information, ranlib for generating
archive indexes, size for listing section sizes of object files,
strings for outputing the printable characters in files, strip for
stripping out symbols (like debugging information) from object files,
and other tools.

Log message:
Fix indentation in buildlink3.mk files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/buildlink3.mk", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.

Log message:
Sort PLIST files.

Unsorted entries in PLIST files have generated a pkglint warning for at
least 12 years. Somewhat more recently, pkglint has learned to sort
PLIST files automatically. Since pkglint 5.4.23, the sorting is only
done in obvious, simple cases. These have been applied by running:

  pkglint -Cnone,PLIST -Wnone,plist-sort -r -F
