Re: Building binutils with newly created target

Thanks. That worked after I installed the automake-1.11 tools.

Is there a reason binutils uses the older automake/aclocal tools?

Also, I'm not familiar with submitting to open source projects but it
would be useful to update the instructions in the
'binutils-porting-guide.txt'. Is there any guidance on how I should
approach this?
