On a Quadra840AV(m68k), binutils is OK. As above, then ran nm,
objdump, and strings over some kernel objects, built and installed
libkvm and checked that vmstat works, then built all of gnu. Resupped
on Sunday, Feb 14, built a kernel, booted from it, and now "make
build" is proceeding nicely; it's now at the gnu/lib stage.

For now I have MKLINT, MKPROFILE, and MKSHARE set to "no," but I did
update the makefiles manually, first.
