Keeping in mind that I am having problems building binutils (mentioned in a recent reply to Brian's post), here is the back trace from a stripped version of ld using the technique you suggested.

Attaching to program `/bin/ld.exe', process 3248

This is probably useless, but just wanted to indicate I'm not ignoring your advice. It is greatly appreciated.
