Hello Nathan Coulson and

I have tried installing the older Binutils- in a
separate /opt/binutils directory, uptating /etc/ and path
accordingly, but that did not work either. I got the same oo-1.1.3 dmake
error. "..Resource larger than 64K cannot be handled. Aborting.
Error starting rsc2 compiler". 
I will revert to a pure Binutils- system and try and rebuild
again. I am not confident when it comes to setting up parallel Binutils.

However, I did manage to build oo-1.1.2 using the newer Binutils-
and gcc-3.3.1. (I have also built oo-1.1.2 using Binutils- with
an older CVS LFS as the base system).

Best regards,

Magnus Larsson
