I would recommend waiting, too.

Nope, it won't.  I put up a newer gcc which should work for you.

Sorry, got busy at work.  Both a new binutils and a new gcc are there.

I kind of feel that way, too.

No need to know heavy-duty Unix internals for this.  I look at the
kernel code every couple of months, nod my head in wonderment, and
then go back to what I was doing.

I'm a helluva applications hacker, though.

Actually, it's pretty good for applications, but gcc is _SLOW_.

Try using the newer gcc (I know this is a lot to have to download).
That'll get you linking properly (or should---let me know if it
doesn't).  Nice that you're already getting something resembling
results---though we want to wean you off of ld.so.1 ASAP.
