I note that binutils 2.10 was recently announced:

June 19, 2000: binutils 2.10 released 
    The first stable binutils release in over two years, 2.10 includes
    many new features, ports, and the addition of the ever-lovable utility
    readelf. Read the NEWS file for more details on what's included in
    2.10. Or go straight to the ftp directory to download 2.10.

I needed to upgrade from to to get glibc to compile
(without a segfault) on my LFS 2.3.5b system.
