Are you speaking about the same kind of problem I got by trowing away
HJs binutils ? I was unable to compile my i486 kernel in ELF due to
the -k (if I recall well) option added by him to objdump (aswell as another
option I don't recall at the moment). The fix was simple : I had grabbed 
HJs objdump.c from binutils-2.5.2.l2?? and compiled it with a binutils 2.6
"workbench", so I end up with a lobjdump (l for Linux :) , oh yes I did the 
same for encaps program (not present in binutils 2.6). So I just change
the definition of the OBJDUMP variable in the i386 kernel Makefiles and tada
it works : I had compiled 1.3.42 till 1.3.45 this these.

Hey you had fullfilled you dream you can stop working on Linux/MIPS :)

cheers, Stoned.
PS/ still making lines on my Olivetti console to find out where I fucked up
my NASP code in the kernel :(
