Ah, ok.  This isn't an easy case to solve, as we don't install all of
libbfd's headers (and really, shouldn't, as it has a bunch of internal
headers that the binutils programs reference).

So, yes, you have to have libbfd built before building anything that depends
on it, and adding a "make prereqs" wouldn't help much here.
