Ok. I know I've written this before, but neither binutils (-4 or -5) did
things properly (nor does the kernel Makefile, actually, which should've
just specified one filename argument if the output was the same as the
input). I've since patched it to behave properly, but want to get a new
version uploaded as well (to fix an Alpha ELF bug among other things). If
you could, grab a copy of the source package, build it, and test it on PPC
to make sure the behaviour is as expected. You can get it at:
The source package should be there at around 02:00 Eastern Time
(US -- half hour from now).
