I had a impression that binutils (ld) had some problem when
built using egcs-1.0.3.  Now I think the GNU linker exposed a bug in 
egcs-1.0.3.

I tried the following.

(0) No binutils for egcs-snapshot installed.
(1) Install egcs-19980824 without --with-gnu-as and --with-gnu-ld.
(2) Build binutils using the egcs-19980824 just installed.
    `make check' fails (ld's cdtest).
    `make install' anyway.
(3) Reinstall egcs-19980824 with --with-gnu-as and --with-gnu-ld.
(4) Build binutils using the egcs-19980824 just installed.
    `make check' succeeds.
    `make install'

So, it seems that egcs should be used with the GNU assmebler and the
GNU linker, and that binutils should be built using the egcs.

Now egcs-snapshot and binutils work fine, and I can benefit from
binutils (I use C++ with templates).
Thank you.
