Re: Updated dlltools package
I'm copying this to debian-devel because I think it's a good question.
I'm surprised nobody else asked it.

Yes, it is only for *creating* a.out libraries, but that doesn't mean
it can't be ELF. A better question is if virtually everything else is

and aout-binutils packages.
