Hmm, I had an up-to-date debian testing system.
So I upgraded to the latest binutils from unstable, that didn't work.
Then I downloaded binutils-2.12.1 from source and installed that - still
doesn't work.
The latest from unstable was 2.12.90.0.9.

None, but could you please tell me what version of binutils you're
using?

Thanks,
