In an ideal world coreboot would be buildable on a wide variety of
binutils versions, but it seems to me that coreboot uses a number of
linker features that just aren't well exercised and only a few people
on the planet understand at all, judging from bug discussions on the
binutils lists. Since I'm not one of them, I choose to be lazy and
stop fighting binutils bugs.

So with the latest Fedora upgrade, I gave up on using the Fedora
binutils and now build a gnu.org one from scratch (along with a
complete cross-compiling toolchain for building a Linux payload with
busybox, uClibc, etc.--I'm happy to share the build scripts if anyone
is interested).
