Arghh!  I build gdb and strace on my gold builds so that I can debug
build failures if any happen in the BLFS packages I need to build
before booting.

So, I've got choices - build like the book (boring, but it will
determine if I can get through the perl tests) and drop gdb but
keep gold : I'll try that if doing it by the book completes and

/me wishes he'd started a build before you updated glibc and
binutils, it might have been easier :)
