The main advantages to the Sun format utility are:
- Working surface analyze that will detect defective blocks that are going
  to get bad.
- Analyzing program that detects defective bearings in the disk (-randrw).
- Will repair nearly any defective disk, that has no firmware bug or electric
  defect.
- Allows to clear the grown defect list if a disk.
- Disk geometry and label geometry are separated.
- Allows cheating in the label geometry to deal with the problems with the
  limitation to 16 bit data types in the Sun disk label.
- Large database of disks including firmware specials.
- You need no desk calculator to generate a partition table.
  Shorthands for:
  - MBytes
  - cylinders/head/sectors
  - size partition to end on end of disk
  - partition following another partition
  - partition ending before another partition
  - shifting partition on the disk (allows growing part 0 and shrinking part 1)
- Partition consistency checker with (ascii) graphical display.
- Mode page interpreter allows to set easily all mode pages you will ever find
  in a manual, sformat needs not to know about them.

NOTE:	Sformat has its full functionality on SunOS/Solaris on sparc
	and Motorola systems, on all other systems sformat will create
	Sun disk labels with wrong byte-order, but formatting/analysis/
	repair will work.

Revision:431796  Sanity Test Failure
tijl search for other commits by this committer
The output of tools like awk, date, sort, tr,... depends on the current
locale set by the user.  Add LANG=C and LC_ALL=C at the beginning of
bsd.port.mk and export them so all commands are executed with the C locale.
LC_ALL=C overrides all other LC_* variables.  LANG is used by setlocale(3)
as default value for LC_* variables, so normally it isn't used when LC_ALL
is set, but there's code out there that looks at LANG directly so it's safer
to set it as well.  The only commands not captured by this are !=
assignments before any inclusion of bsd.port.*mk.

Introduce USE_LOCALE=<locale> that adds LANG=<locale> and LC_ALL=<locale> to
CONFIGURE_ENV and MAKE_ENV so upstream build systems can be executed with a
different locale (e.g. USE_LOCALE=en_US.UTF-8).

MASTER_SITES cleanup.

- Replace ${MASTER_SITE_FOO} with FOO.
- Merge MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR into MASTER_SITES when possible. (This means 99.9%
  of the time.)
- Remove occurrences of MASTER_SITE_LOCAL when no subdirectory was present and
  no hint of what it should be was present.
- Fix some logic.
- And generally, make things more simple and easy to understand.

While there, add magic values to the FESTIVAL, GENTOO, GIMP, GNUPG, QT and
SAMBA macros.

Also, replace some EXTRACT_SUFX occurences with USES=tar:*.

- Allow this port to be compiled with CC set to something containing a

- Use the libschily sources taken from cdrtools 2.01.01a07 instead of those
  shipping with sformat 3.5 for building sformat; the former include their
  own version of __dtoa() which is no longer externally visible with libc
  symbol versioning turned on (thus breaking the build of stock sformat).
- While here also use MASTER_SITE_LOCAL for providing a backup mirror of
  the sformat 3.5 distfile instead of using a private one.
- Fix the checksumming of sformat.dat on LP64 platforms so sformat doesn't
  erroneously complain about that file containing uncertified data there.
  Bump PORTREVISION for this.

- Fix a typo in PORTREVISION. Doh!
- Manually replace included copies of config.guess and config.sub with
  versions from ${PORTSDIR}/Templates. This is necessary as the sformat
  package doesn't have a valid configure script in it's root directory
  but one in a sub-directory that is executed by the SING (Schily Is
  Not Gnu) makefile system further down the road. Therefor the port
  can't set GNU_CONFIGURE which would automatically copy the relevant
  files.
- Remove BSD_SCSI_SENSE_BUG from COPTX (CFLAGS) to libscg. It is a
  workaround for a (probably alumnus) bug in a SCSI-driver of NetBSD
  and the affected code doesn't get compiled on neither pre-CAM nor
  CAM versions of FreeBSD.
- Use DATADIR in pkg-plist.

- Fix yet another bug that might be used for a root exploit. As with the last
  bug you are only vulnerable if you locally set the sformat binary suid root.
- Respect CC already at the configure-stage of sformat else we end up running
  configure with GCC and compiling with whatever CC was set to.

From the submitter:
Sun format is a util for formatting/partitioning/analysis/repairing of SCSI
disks. While formatting and partitioning currently is only usefule on big-
endian systems in order to create Sun disk labels, analysis and repairing
works on either endian and are very useful to remap defect blocks when
AWRE/ARRE fail for some reason. Tested on i386 and sparc64, respawned a
disk here.
