Part (99%) of binutils' configuring is actually performed while building,
thus when you issue make, not when you issue configure. One problem I ran
into is that the configure scripts during make failed with "C compiler
cannot generate executables" because of the LDFLAGS - it should not be set
while configuring.

I avoided that problem by issuing "make configure-host" before starting the
make all phase (should've said so right away - slipped my mind). I'm not
sure if it will remedy your problem too.

I have not seen the GCC_NO_EXEC problem myself. I'm sorry but I can't help
you with that.

Binutils versions I have built are 2.13.95 and 2.14

Good luck!
