Since libbfd & friends are no longer default-installed by the src/ build
machinery when building binutils or gcc, I wonder if it would be a good
idea to "spin off" libbfd as a separate "package" -- with no ties to
(and not used by) binutils/gcc themselves.  (Obv, binutils/gcc would
continue as they do at present, building an internal version with just
what they need).

That way, bfd-for-public-use could be configured with all bells and
whistles (e.g. elf support, etc).
