where's my gasp??

I have had the same question in my February version of the LFS 
book, as in Version 3.3 and now in 4.0 CVS: some files mentioned 
among "Contents of ..." are missing, for example gasp, from 
Binutils-2.13 at the beginning of chapter 5 (Host system SuSE 

After I compiled Binutils, I changed into the $LFS/static/bin 
directory and there were all of the "Contents of Binutils" stated 
in the book, but gasp was missing. (I further noticed there was 
c++filt in addition to the mentioned). 
I tried out the contents by typing, for example, 
./addr2line --version and they proved to be functioning, giving 
the expected output. 
gasp is not among them but it is in my host distribution all 
right, which I tested by typing gasp --version (without 
specifying $LFS/static/bin/./filename), which gave me an output 
mentioning Suse in the version name.

I would be very grateful if somebody could point out to me if 
gasp, from binutils-2.13, should be there or not, or if anybody 
has it in it's build of LFS.
