Description Flags
usr.bin/ar: Fix deterministic mode when running as ranlib none

Description Fabian Keil 2015-08-29 10:02:34 UTC
r286024 lets ranlib ignore the -D flag and default to non-deterministic mode as the chunk that sets AR_D is only reached when running as ar.

The attached patch is one way to fix this. Obtained from ElectroBSD.

I intend to MFC the change to enable deterministic mode by default, and will include this fix.
