HJL's binutils version numbers use 5 (i.e. 126.96.36.199.2)parts, while FSF
binutils is always 2 or 3 parts (2.15.x max). Also, the link in the
book points to the freshmeat page for the "Beta Branch" of binutils,
which is HJL's code - tracking the HEAD of binutils cvs. The
differences aren't actually that wide - HJL tracks CVS HEAD closer, and
has some linux-specific stuff that wouldn't be valid on other platforms.
