Uh, oh. I'm using 2.8.1.  I hope that's OK  too.

Hmm. if you feel really adventurous, you could try doing

	./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-shared

and see if that works with the `local, and then see if it
works with *our*  The bfd source is the same, so the shared
libraries should be the same...

I'd be just as happy to ship a bunch of config files to build the
binutils 2.8.x code that's already in our tree in /usr/src/gnu/dist as
telling people to get the canonical source and build it.
