gcc-3.2.1 configury bug due to FSF binutils version string

(cc'ing lists of affected packages)
The latest FSF binutils-184.108.40.206 release is being mis-detected by gcc's
checking assembler hidden support... no
when of course it should be:-
checking assembler hidden support... yes
It is possibly due to the extra digit on the end of the binutils version
string causing the grief. ie: binutils-2.13.2 does not suffer the same
The result of this mis-detetcion is broken __cxa_atexit support in glibc as
evidenced by failure of glibc's "make check"
I believe your patch from here:-
is related to this bug. Any chance you could revisit this?
Meanwhile, I'll open a gcc PR, once I've confirmed the problem is still
there on the gcc mainline.
