Yes of, course, that is my question, was it changed for binutils
recently?  Is tooldir=/usr then it works, if tooldir is /usr/$target,
then it is broken now and either the shortcuts needs to be changed or
ld definitions need to be changed (or tooldir def).

No, I don't think that he is missing  I can verify that the
reported problem exists, I see this myself, e.g. when building
libwin32, I just wasn't sure if it was my fault or gcc's or if it was
a binutils issue and didn't searched too long.

Now I want to know what is the reason since it looks like there were
no changes.  Christopher, is the tooldir defined during configure for
binutols or os it defined automatically internally by some logic, and
how is it defined for the ld compilation?
