I just checked the binutils on my (Intel ...) laptop. Libbfd contains
DT_NEEDED entries for libc.so.6. This means that libbfd was linked
against libc which will make binutils 2.7 produce bad executables.
Suggested bootstrap procedure:
- restore your old binutils 2.7 binaries
- manually rebuild binutils 2.8.1 + patch. When configuring binutils
2.8.1 do not use the --enable-shared option, it will make binutils
2.7 generate bad libraries.
- install the binutils just built
- You should now be able to rebuild the rpm without problems
