"./configure --with-unified-bfd" was the model upon which the original
NetBSD libbfd was built, and was still there as of binutils 2.11.2 (I
haven't checked since then).  IMNSHO, they're so interdependent that there's
no point separating them, so GNU's wrong.  <cynical grin>

But "whatever works"....
