I have prepared a cygwin64-binutils.i686 with this patch to match.

But this recent (and unrelated) upstream change has caused libiberty.a 
not to be installed by default:

It seems this was done to stop the host-libiberty from being installed 
with gcc, but libbfd still requires symbols provided thereby, so the 
lack of libiberty breaks the build of dumper.exe.  I believe this needs 
to be fixed in the toplevel configury, and have added a comment to that 
effect to the PR, but in the meantime, binutils (both i686 and x86_64) 
will need to be configured with --enable-install-libiberty.
