Fixed.  It looks like some shuffling is happening on the server as they 
still have the old link pointing to nothing...

The portability patch is not needed as we have a new toolchain and do 
not support exotic systems.

The robustness patch is a Fedora thing.  It appears to have been 
rejected from inclusion into the main elfutils codebase.  You can read 
details about what it includes here: 
.  Essentially, it allows the elfutils binaries to be robust to files 
with broken ELF information.

Although not accepted, the robustness patch is somewhat standard... 
However, I would prefer to stick to upstream as then I can make a 
release without waiting on Fedora to do their update (that annoyed me 
when I was using a i18n patch for coreutils from Fedora).  Also, no-one 
is really going to use the elfutils eu-readelf and eu-strip.  They are 
going to use the ones from binutils.
