Zumbi: we need to include a patch for binutils to solve this.

/usr/lib64/libiberty.a

I can't see where this path is constructed. :-(

There is a bigger problem here too - what was decided about /usr/lib64 ?

/usr/lib64 -> lib

Basically, I don't think our binutils-foo builds should be allowing any
installation into /usr/lib64, just /usr/lib/ and if processes want to
find /usr/lib64/foo the symlink will do the job for us.

IMHO binutils should not be putting anything into /usr/lib64

For now, the fix is presumably dpkg --force-all to restore a working system.
