I built and installed binutils-2.8 without any trouble (sh configure
&& gmake && gmake install)

While doing a "make build" to build the world, I encountered one
problem so far... "make includes" died in /usr/src/sys/arch/pmax/stand
because there is no "includes" target.  I worked around this by adding
a dummy "includes:" target and restarted the build.
