FSF cvs binutils has a new feature not yet in HJL. -z relro

In glibc configure I get:
checking for -z relro option... no
with the newest HJL. FSF should give "yes". This is a pic/pie feature "make 
RELRO segment read-only after symbol resolution". It will likely be in the 
next HJL release, and binutils-2.15. Support for it is already in glibc-2.3.3
