Binutils are not new enough. The requirements are documented on this

No, there are only two different source sets, and that's only for
GCC. So you'll need:

 binutils: recent sources
 gdb: recent sources
 gcc: 2.95.2 for some targets, newer sources for others.

It's all documented on the build instructions pages.
