I'm running automated test compiles on Binutils, GCC, Linux, NetBSD
and, since a few days ago, elfutils.

Building/running the tests, I noticed this little warning:

.../configure --enable-maintainer-mode --enable-tests-rpath --enable-gprof --enable-gcov --enable-valgrind --prefix=/tmp/elfutils

make make V=1

As it is tested beforehand that we should not run into this, this
patch should fix the warning:
