Doesn't *anybody* use lint?

You don't create human-readable one from binary, but rather create
the binaries from human readable definitions.  The correct method for
making the libraries is:

	1)  Set up a llib-lx (x is the library name) file
	    with the same format as is found in /usr/lib/lib/llib-lc.
	    This is includes the lint comments such as /*LINTLIBRARY*/

	2)  Run the command:
	    /lib/cpp -C -Dlint llib-lx | /usr/lib/lint/lint1 -v > llib-lx.ln

The desired binary file will then be in place when you run
	    lint file.c -lx
