You don't need hardware to test other binutils targets. Just
configure with --target=, "make", and "make check". Some tests won't
run without a C compiler and library installed, but a lot do.
Anyway, I ran the testsuite for you. frv-linux needs some testsuite
updates. It's possible some other binutils patch caused the failures,
but please attempt to fix regressions caused by your patch. Also,
mips targets fail ld tests with ".gnu.hash is incompatible with the
MIPS ABI". You'll need to exclude mips*-*-* from targets defaulting
to both hash styles. (See ld/emultempl/mipself.em)
