 OK, I'm looking at my build log, these are for the testsuite (I
don't normally run tests after building LFS or clfs, unless I'm
editing a package in BLFS).

 I've been able to upgrade all of my systems where I built ff3,
without changing the version of gtk.  But, a quick check suggests my
oldest gtk on those is 2.14.4.

 2.6.29.latest please ;-) [ 2.6.29 had networking issues for some
people ]

 Googling today, almost all the matches were for kernel/module
issues.  A few others from 4 or 5 years ago.  It does sound like a
problematic version of binutils.  There were two more recent matches
for other packages, one with no relevant responses, one fixed by
passing an obscure flag to configure [possibly defaulting the
toolkit], I can't relate that to your problem.

 Is this gnash-0.8.5 ?  I've got that (without all the deps, and
particularly without kde, speex, csound - I use SDL for sound
handling) on clfs pure64 from January, and libtool had no problems
with .libs/libgnashvm.a.
