OK. It may be that binutils-2.20.1, at least with the options we're
using, is somehow tagging the file as incompatible with older
binutils. This would be unfortunate, and it's an issue I'd like to
resolve if that's what it is. I'll see if I can reproduce it or if
someone else (preferably someone on x86_64) can do so.
