Yes, gcc and binutils should be installed into the same location.
eg. I use --prefix=/home/alan/gnu

Avoid --with-as and --with-ld.  Those options can result in gcc not
honouring -B to search for as and ld, and this error from the ld

ERROR: ************************************************************************
ERROR: Your compiler driver ignores -B when choosing ld.
ERROR: You will not be testing the new ld in many of the following tests.
ERROR: It seems you will be testing <something else> instead.
