The package in question was already build using binutils 2.16
according to the buildd log.

I am not really surprised because I just compared the linker scripts from 2.15 and 2.16. They have a different section ordering and the official debian package clearly follows the 2.16 ordering. Also, there was no differences between the linker scripts in 2.16 and in 2.16.1

My main suspect is still libtool.
