Was there another problem with binutils other than this one, that came
up? I must have missed something.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but don't we still need to use this hack
in chapter 5 regardless wether we use GNU's version or not? what the big
problem with just doing the same thing in chapter 6?  all were doing is
makeing sure the config behaves, were not modifying C code or anything?
