I sent the other message, just because it had possibly relevant information.

Thank you so much, Pierre!!!!

I think the ticket can now be closed. I will include the sed:

sed -i '/LDFLAGS.*static_flag/ s/^/#/' configure

for those still using binutils-2.24.

Hope we remember to remove it when the freeze period begins, because I
believe the released book doesn't support previous release (am I correct
on that?)
