Not to reply to my own post or anything, but after I sent the first
email, I realized that I should not have applied the patch, since I
was using 2.7 and the patch was for 2.6; *DUH*!!! I am dense!
Oh well, I blew the binutils-2.6 directory away and re-unpacked the
tar and tried again, this time without the patch. It worked! Sorry
to bother the list...

I am still curious about this issue. Any answers?
