[lfs-support] Second pass of Binutils: unrecognized configure options

This is my first time going though LFS. On the second pass of Binutils 
(5.9) (LFS Version 7.9-systemd), I noticed that the following was 
printed at the end of the output from configure (with options directly 
pasted from the book):

configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-lib-path, 

I searched the configure script and could find no reference to these 
options. I used the wget list and the mdsum script when downloading the 
source for this and all other packages. Perhaps these (apparently not 
universally necessary?) options are left over from a previous version of 
Binutils. According to the configure script comments, the LIBS 
environmental variable would seem to be used in the same way as 
--with-lib-path. It seems possible that the with-sysroot option could be 
set instead with LDFLAGS, which is used to pass flags to the linker, but 
I don't know much about linkers and compilers, so was wondering if 
someone could shed some light on this.
