Subject: [gentoo-dev] Default USE changes for fortran and mudflap?

While I'm adding USE defaults to toolchain.eclass and moving them out of the
profiles, I thought now would be a good time to review a couple default flag
settings.

mudflap:
This is currently enabled by default but I'd like to disable it.  It controls
libmudflap and the -fmudflap flag.  I think the only reason this flag exists is
so we can disable it in crossdev.  It's not required by anything in the tree,
the code is bitrotten and has been removed for GCC 4.9. If you know how to use
-fmudflap, you know how to set a USE flag.  

fortran:
Do we want to keep enabling fortran by default?  The majority of users will
never get the urge to install a fortran package, and the fortran eclass handles
those that do.  I think it should be treated as all the other optional
languages and disabled by default, but I'd like to know if there are other
opinions.
