This would seem to be a binutils problem. I'm using

[michael@namaste egcs-build]$ rpm -q binutils

Any recommendations as to proper binutils (or whether this is the
problem) would be appreciated.

As an addendum, is anyone aware of commercial compilers that have
solid C++ support for Linux? The current state of egcs makes my work
impossible, and I'm wondering if there are any short-term
alternatives (long-term of course being to help the egcs project).
