Behavioral blocks in EPLD schematic are not being updated


Changes to behavioral modules in an XEPLD schematic design are not
reflected in the new implementation.


PLD symbols in 7000 schematics should have the PLD=<file> attribute on
them, not the FILE=<file> attribute (even Xabel files), as is used for
FPGA designs.

If the FILE attribute is used, the compiled module will get merged in,
but xemake will not automatically re-assemble the module if it has been

Replace all FILE attributes with PLD attributes.

Note: If using XACTStep v6.0, the FILE attribute is supported, if the
DEF=PLD attribute is also used.
