BUG: g77 port includes files that probably shouldn't be there

Description

After a destroot of g77, one can find: lib/libiberty.a lib/soft-float/libiberty.a share/info/dir

I don't know if g77 needs libiberty, but maybe some port in the future would provide this? Or we could create a port that provides it?

When I built binutils for cross-targets, it did create libiberty.a although it doesn't make much sense when building for a cross-target (it was host libiberty).

For dir, I suggest either commenting out the install-info lines in the Makefile or (probably better, so g77.info will be linked to /usr/share/info/dir) just removing dir. FYI, in cross-binutils, I create a new dir file but that's because I have several info pages.

g77 port is obsolete you should probably just use the gcc34 or gcc4 ports instead and we should remove the g77 port.
