            Bug ID: 16685
           Summary: Option removed from llvm-ar not removed from docs or
                    sample Makefile
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: new bugs
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org

Revision r186078 (2013-07-11) removed support for llvm-ar's "f" option, which
truncates names in archives.  However,
http://llvm.org/docs/CommandGuide/llvm-ar.html still mentions "f" as a valid
option, and projects/sample/Makefile.llvm.rules still passes "f" to llvm-ar:

    LArchive      = $(LLVMToolDir)/llvm-ar rcsf

On top of that, the error message llvm-ar produces when an invalid option is
specified does not indicate *which* option was invalid or even that an option
was invalid.  That made it take longer than it should have to track down the
problem: both the documentation and the Makefile.llvm.rules seem to indicate
that the "f" is still hunky-dory, which it's not.

Please update http://llvm.org/docs/CommandGuide/llvm-ar.html and
