I was just compiling nmap and i saw its configure script checking for
libiberty.h. It doesn't include it in the tarball, so it must use the
one provided by the system (binutils version). I don't know much about
libiberty, or if nmap really needs it and i'm too tired to check it out
right now. But when i saw configure checking for this header i rememberd
this thread and thougth u guys should know.
