It seems binutils already switched over a while ago:
binutils (188.8.131.5290827-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Snapshot, taken from the trunk 20090827.
- Fix PR ld/10518: In linker scripts override a "*" match by any other
wildcard match. Closes: #540751.
* debian/*.shlibs: Update to the version from the trunk. Closes: #540800.
* Add sysroot support for cross builds (Hector Oron). Closes: #522480.
* Update long description of binutils-doc. Closes: #428764.
* Tighten build dependency on autoconf.
* Fix some lintian warnings.

and the other day we had a bug hunting session on irc because the
sysroot setting for a recent cross binutils changed the way indirect
libraries are searched and failed to find libm.
So this is something that is already being worked on now it seems.
