I’m told libbfd.so is a private/internal library of binutils that should
not be dynamically linked against. A static version exists (libbfd.a),
and packages should be using that AFAIK.

Cc'ing -devel in case there’s a reason it should not be that way. If, on
the contrary, nobody objects, I’ll file a wishlist against lintian so
that an error (warning?) is emitted for packages that DT_NEED that
library (and libopcodes/libiberty as well?)
