After Thomas posted his analysis of his binutils bug I doublechecked
the binutils binary package. It doesn't contain the arch directory
because I used the RedHat spec file which (imho a superfluous attempt
to be overly conforming to the FHS) explicitly build the binutils
without the arch directory. I'll upload a fixed package shortly.
Alan, what were your sympthoms again, did the built executables crash
or the linker itself? I understood the later ...
Oh, and a happy new year to you all out there!
