My understanding is that shared-libs linked with the old linker
aren't compatible with the new linker.

The correct way to upgrade (and it worked for me) is:

 1. Re-install the old libraries temporarily
 2. Build ld, gas, and gcc
 3. Install ld, gas, and gcc (only after building all three)
 4. Build all libraries from scratch (ie "make clean" first)
 5. Make everything else and install

This may be overkill, but I know it works.  If you don't have backups of
the old libs, you could probably get away with linking ld, gas, and gcc
statically and skip step 1.
