some simple questions/observations about the "binutils" build

  from this page:

1) i'm assuming that the "--enable-64-bit-bfd" option is unnecessary
if you have no interest in 64-bit support, right?

2) if you don't select 64-bit support, i assume you can skip the
subsequent "make headers -C bfd" step, yes?

3) do you actually need to run "make configure-host" before running
"make"?  wouldn't this be the default?  more precisely, couldn't you
just jump from the "configure" step straight to the "make" and "make
install"?  thanks.
