I started working on this so long ago, binutils-2.10 wasn't out yet :)
and I didn't know that binutils was still being actively developed -
2.9.1 having been released over two years ago.  I should have looked
around and read more.

I did download 2.10 a week or so ago, but didn't look at it very much,
as I had a good thing going and wanted to finish it.  Assuming that
2.10 has all of the fixes to the 2.9.1 found in the NetBSD 1.4 tree,
I'll take a closer look at it now that I've reached this point.
