RE: Binutils 2.26 released

  Hi all,

in order to be able to compile successfully binutils-2.26 sources
on a Oracle Solaris machine,

cat  /etc/release
                             Oracle Solaris 11.2 X86
  Copyright (c) 1983, 2014, Oracle and/or its affiliates.  All rights
                             Assembled 23 June 2014

I needed to modify include/elf/common.h      
(see patch below).

Is this related to the fact that development was not set to false?
