Yeah, in "binutils/binutils", what you said is reasonable to me.

But in "bintuils" (include as, ld, gdb ...), most of sub-systems content
"HAVE_SBRK", and some of them not enable 'Werror'.

Originally I tried "binutils/binutils" in "binutils/binutils/configure"
(but not send patch). But after I thought of again, for me:

 - 'HAVE_SBRK' express whether have sbrk(), do not care about warnings.

 - Multiple sub-systems use 'HAVE_SBRK', some can bare the warnings.

 - If the sub-systems can not bare warnings, it needs additional trying
   (e.g binutils/binutils), and still keep the standard checking for
   'HAVE_SBRK' in related configure.
