I have uploaded a new binutils package.  It's an update to the latest
from CVS *plus* a hack (no, not a patch, really), which allows to link
the projects which fail with a "relocation truncated to fit: R_X86_64_PC32
agains ..." error, like harfbuzz or octave.

This should work for the time being, but the hack is not supposed to
stay.  It's just avoiding to bail out with the R_X86_64_PC32 error
message at all.  While this helps in the above cases, it will also
suppress any legitimate of these errors, so it's a bit dangerous.

Nevertheless, it helps to go forward with the 64 bit distro.

Have fun,
