Interesting. I started tracking -current after the new toolchain went live.
I thought that USETOOLS=yes was the default (I didn't have it set to no),
but adding USETOOLS=1 to /etc/mk.conf seems to have made the
install/binstall problem go away. Though, now I get new and improved problems:

build ===> mdsetimage
rm -f a.out [Ee]rrs mklog core *.core  mdsetimage mdsetimage.lo
nb_progname.lo  mdsetimage.ln nb_progname.ln  
rm -f i386--netbsdelf-mdsetimage.cat8
rm -f .depend /usr/src/tools/mdsetimage/../../gnu/usr.sbin/mdsetimage/tags 
cc -O -include /usr/src/tools/mdsetimage/../compat/compat_netbsd.h -Wall
bfd.h: No such file or directory
*** Error code 1

fwiw, I'm running 1.5Y that I built last week:
