just to check the correct installation and dependencies to run that
software correctly.Also you have to look the compilation options while
building the same.

Ok, well the copy'n'paste you did doesn't detail any errors

Do
    make -j1

Why -j1 ?
If you set MAKEFLAGS="-j<n>" to take advantage of multiple cores the error
can be hidden higher up in the compiler spew,,, -j1 will make it easier to
read

As binutils is the first package it may well be worth going back and
starting again, it will be something simple, probably a missing package on
your host system
