Convert between textual representations of numbers and binary
Maintained by: thierry@FreeBSD.org search for ports maintained by this maintainer

These programs convert between textual and binary representations of numbers.
ascii2binary reads input consisting of textual representations of numbers
separated by whitespace and produces as output the binary equivalents. The type
and precision of the binary output is selected using command line flags.

binary2ascii reads input consisting of binary numbers and converts them to
their textual representation. Command line flags specify the type and size
of the binary numbers and provide control over the format of the output.
Unsigned integers may be written out in binary, octal, decimal, or hexadecimal.
Signed integers may be written out only in binary or decimal. Floating point
numbers may be written out only decimal, either in standard or scientific
notation. (If you want to examine the binary representation of floating point
numbers, just treat the input as a sequence of unsigned characters.)

The two programs are useful for generating test data, for inspecting binary
files, and for interfacing programs that generate textual output to programs
that require binary input and conversely. They can also be useful when it is
desired to reformat numbers.

Update CONFIGURE_ARGS for how we pass CONFIGURE_TARGET to configure script.
Specifically, newer autoconf (> 2.13) has different semantic of the
configure target. In short, one should use --build=CONFIGURE_TARGET
instead of CONFIGURE_TARGET directly. Otherwise, you will get a warning
and the old semantic may be removed in later autoconf releases.

To workaround this issue, many ports hack the CONFIGURE_TARGET variable
so that it contains the ``--build='' prefix.

To solve this issue, under the fact that some ports still have
configure script generated by the old autoconf, we use runtime detection
in the do-configure target so that the proper argument can be used.

Changes to Mk/*:
 - Add runtime detection magic in bsd.port.mk

Bump portrevision due to upgrade of devel/gettext.

The affected ports are the ones with gettext as a run-dependency
according to ports/INDEX-7 (5007 of them) and the ones with USE_GETTEXT
in Makefile (29 of them).
