[lfs-dev] [PATCH] binutils-2.32 gold testsuite linker error (LFS-BOOK-20190624-systemd)

While testing binutils-2.32 in Ch 6.16 of LFS-BOOK-20190624-systemd, I
receive this error in the gold testsuite:

gcctestdir/collect-ld: internal error in set_section_addresses, at
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[5]: *** [Makefile:9430: incremental_copy_test] Error 1

This was reported upstream as a binutils + gcc-9.x bug:

The error prevents the full testsuite from running. The following
workaround (after extracting binutils) disables the test and prevents
the error on my system:

sed -i.orig -e '/@\tincremental_copy_test$(EXEEXT) \\/d' \
             -e '/@\tincremental_copy_test \\/d' \

I've also attached a more comprehensive patch to remove all traces of
incremental_copy_test from Makefile.in, if that's preferable.
