Your theory that there must be something wrong with the cygwin binutils
distribution because you can't build binutils from either the cygwin
sources or the "gnu.org" source doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
I wonder if this is just a problem of building in the source directory
when tools like binutils, gcc, and gdb are usually built in a separate
build directory. I'd suggest creating a directory and then doing a
I did just build binutils that way with no problem.
If that doesn't fix things for you then, I don't know what the problem
is but it seems like there are some obvious things you could do to
track things down, like google for the information, or maybe even try
to actively debug it.
