[ITP] util-linux

Hash: SHA1

Following up on a recent discussion on the main list, I have gone
through util-linux-2.12r and compiled as much as possible, giving me the
following, all with gettext support:

arch.exe more.exe

agetty.exe blockdev.exe lvtune.exe fsck.cramfs fsck.minix mkfs.bfs
mkfs.cramfs /mkfs.exe mkfs.minix mkswap.exe sln.exe

cal.exe chkdupexe clear col.exe colcrt.exe colrm.exe column.exe
cytune.exe ddate.exe flock.exe getopt.exe hexdump.exe ipcrm.exe ipcs.exe
isosize.exe line.exe logger.exe look.exe mcookie.exe namei.exe pg.exe
rename.exe renice.exe reset rev.exe script.exe scriptreplay setsid.exe
setterm.exe tailf.exe ul.exe whereis.exe write.exe

ramsize.exe rdev.exe rootflags.exe vidmode.exe

Instead of continuing to overload cygutils with more utilities, I would
like to propose this instead.

The following issues need to be considered:

1) agetty, more, and setsid would have to be marked _obsolete; I have
patched all these programs based on the existing packages.

2) clear and reset, already marked _obsolete, are also included here.
These don't collide with ncurses, however, since these versions are
scripts and ncurses are .exe's.

3) The following programs and manpages would have to be removed
simultaneously from cygutils: cal col colcrt colrm column ddate getopt
mcookie namei rename rev.

On condition that this plan is approved, here are the packages:

category: Text Utils
requires: cygwin e2fsprogs libintl3 libncurses8 libpcre0 perl
sdesc: "Random collection of Linux utilities"
ldesc: "util-linux is a random collection of Linux utilities."
