About 1/2 of the 6000 third party applications (The FreeBSD Ports
Collection) are not buildable with Binutils 2.12.0. There are two fatal
bugs: the basename() incorrect usage, in which SO dependencies were made to
<functionname>.so rather than the lib the function was in. The other was
that any time 'ld' needed to react to our __warn_references usage in
libc, it would core dump. I also hit this when Bmaking GCC 3.1.
