Hello Sir/Mam

I am trying to install binutils-2.24 on Debian 8.4 to build gcc cross-compiler for
powerpc-linux.

Binutils is not part of GCC, so you should have asked on the binutils
mailing list instead.

If you configure with --disable-werror then that diagnostic will only
be a warning, not an error.
Right.

This kind of issue comes up commonly when trying to build older code with newer compilers. I've long held the opinion that -Werror, while good for development is wrong for releases.
