 In addition to what Jeremy said, you can see within the book itself where
there is no conflict.  When you swing the spec file out, you have done what
you needed to keep binutils around for.  At chap6 "Adjusting Toolchain" we
could probably add the same bit as in glibc chap 5 "You may now remove the
binutils-* directories.
