Summary     : A collection of utilities and DSOs to handle compiled objects
Description :
Elfutils is a collection of utilities, including ld (a linker),
nm (for listing symbols from object files), size (for listing the
section sizes of an object or archive file), strip (for discarding
symbols), readelf (to see the raw ELF file structures), and elflint
(to check for well-formed ELF files).

Update Information:

This update fixes some problems in core file handling, including core files
generated by PIE binaries.  It also adds support for DWARF 4 format features to
libdw and eu-readelf, including some new libdw interfaces for accessing new
DWARF details.
