I was using  binutils- without any problem until I went
back to recompile glibc and resulted in segmentation fault below:

I've tried binutils- as well, but was still problem. Only
versions up to binutils- works ... glibc compiles
successful. I've also tested glibc-2.11.3 as well with the same

Could this be a binutils problem or something missing in my glibc compilation?
