 A strange error (assuming, of course, that you haven't built a
different version of binutils than what is in the book).

 The first question has to be: is ld actually missing, or does it
think it's too old?  Somewhere in the build directory (or maybe in
one of its subdirectories) you should have a config.log which shows
the details (code, results) for the relevant test (you may also have
other config.log files).  Please share the results of the test
(particularly any error messages) with us.  Possibly, the error
message(s) will point to the problem (e.g. perhaps one of the
libgcc_s symlinks is missing, which causes gcc to fail to compile,
and the test which triggers that is looking for the version of ld).
