One thing to consider is that back in the days of LFS-6.2, I think we
were doing the "saving binutils directory for chapter 6", then in
Chapter 6 we modify the Chapter 5 installation of binutils. Or
something along those lines.

Bottom line is I remember that the Chapter 5 Tools directory gets
modified, so it is not a pure Chapter 5 Tools build.
