Subject: libbfd broken?

I tried to do a "make build" with June 16 -current, and got this:
install ===> libstdc++/io
install -r -p -c  -o root  -g wheel -m 600 libstdc++.a /usr/lib/libstdc++.a
ranlib -t /usr/lib/libstdc++.a
*** Signal 11

And now it seems that lots of programs are getting SIGSEGV...

yerfable /tmp> ld

yerfable /tmp> ar

yerfable /tmp> ranlib

None of those programs have been recompiled yet, so it must be a shared
lib that broke; maybe libbfd? But then again, not everything that uses
libbfd dumps core... as and strip seem okay.

Anyone else seeing this?
