2.26.1 an try a
Did not work.  I did get a lot further but got an error:

  libtool: compile:  x86_64-lfs-linux-gnu-gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. 
-I../../ld -I. -I../../ld -I../bfd -I../../ld/../bfd -I../../ld/../include 
-g -O2 -DENABLE_PLUGINS -DLOCALEDIR=\"/tools/share/locale\" -g -O2 -g -O2 
-MT libldtestplug_la-testplug.lo -MD -MP -MF 
.deps/libldtestplug_la-testplug.Tpo -c ../../ld/testplug.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o 
x86_64-lfs-linux-gnu-gcc: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault 
(program as)

So the assembler is dropping a segmentation error.  I'm going to drop back 
to binutils-2.26.1 and try a full build.
