IBM S/370 and binutils

I built binutils-2.9.5.0.14 with target=i370-elf, assembled an empty .s file
to get an ELF binary. When I used readelf, it said the machine type was
0xf00f (unkown).

The source I got is at ftp://ftp.valinux.com/pub/support/hjl/binutils , to
which I was directed by Linas Vepstas ( http://www.linas.org ) who is working
on a port of Linux to S/370.

Is this not official? Thanks.
