I'd say keep the static versions first then. If something doesn't compile, 
try a static version (either in or out of chroot) and recompile those 
packages once you have rebooted. I have no answer for this. It can be a 
hardware problem yes that only gets triggered when some specific things is 
done and it's possible that binutils and gettext trigger that event.
