| 6-30-06 4.1.1-5 2.17-1 slow link

Nice work, and I can surely try this. Now, I don't see a recent non-2.17
version of binutils anywhere in .deb form for i386. Before I go off an
rebuild, could you place your version somewhere where I can fetch it from?
Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
