If you're expecting to get powerpc64 support with powerpc-*-rtems*,
then you will need to add --enable-64-bit-bfd on a 32-bit host.
Wouldn't it make sense to enable this option by default if you build cross
No, if you are hosting on a 32-bit machine for a 32-bit target, why
should you pay the penalty of calculating addresses, relocs etc. using
64-bit arithmetic?  Your compiler might not even support long long, or
if it does, the support might have bugs.

For native tools I completely agree with this point of view, but for
cross tools I think the situation is different. If you have a broken
compiler, then you can still use --disable-64-bit-bfd.

I agree. This is a cross toolset and we know that the binutils
must match the gcc and support 64-bits. gcc certainly assumes
it is always there.

In looking farther, it looks like is not target
aware but relies on want64 to be set in config.bfd. We always
want64=yes for powerpc*-*-rtems* so this work and trip
the logic in Is this an acceptable solution?
