Chris, sorry to butt in here. But in my experience gcc doesn't look at the
path for the binutils (at least during the configure stage).

A more surefire way around this problem is to use the new method currently
in LFS cvs.

Just simply add:-

    --with-as=$LFS/static/bin/as \

to the gcc configure line. That way all the gcc feature tests for assembler
and linker pass properly and the new binutils get used during the gcc build.
