<QA hat>

This is a trivial fix that doesn't come with any real backwards compatibility dangers. In fact, it improves safety of packages through replacing implicit dependency on private API of a medium-sized package by explicit dependency on small, dedicated package.

That said, 9 months (1.5yr in case of glibc) to apply the fix is definitely too long. Therefore, I'm setting a deadline on fixing the remaining bugs to 2014-12-27. If the bugs aren't fixed till that point, I will be committing simple 'sed' statements to replace the inherits.

This should be fixed in binutils-config-4-r1 and above.

@vapier, please take a look at:


BTW, neat trick with cvsver and $Header.  We'll probably need a git hook if you want to keep doing something like that after the git migration.
