I didnt check the FreeBSD 4 cvs, but 5.x uses binutils 2.13 and they no
longer have a separate gnu/usr.bin/as and gnu/usr.bin/binutils/as. I
dont know if the first needs to be kept for a.out but the last 
for that version is March 1992.  It looks like it hasnt been patched
since it's been brought in to 5.x.  This would affect a couple other
pieces also though, right? I can think of libiberty, and possibly gdb,
but it might have farther implications than that.
Yeah, that sounds right about affecting the a.out. I think FreeBSD is 
on someone to come up with a a.out toolchain. I really don't want to 
a.out support off from DragonFly at this time. I'm not totally sure 
about all the
complications without some further investigation.
